Most people associate Sarah Paulson with her many characters on American Horror Story, but she has appeared in many films in the last few years. Her latest projects include Glass, The Goldfinch, and an upcoming thriller coming this May.

The film Run is directed by Aneesh Chaganty, who also worked on Searching. The story will follow Diane, played by Paulson, as a mother who carries out the symptoms of Munchausen's syndrome by proxy. Many of Paulson's fans are already pumped for her upcoming role.

The cast will also include Kiera Allen, who plays Diane's daughter Chloe. Chloe is seemingly a child in need of a lot of care, and her mother is eager to provide it.

Many people who have reviewed the storyline of the film and watched the trailer see some similarities between the relationship Diane and Chloe have compared to the relationship between Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard. In fact, both parents seemingly hide their children away from the outside world on purpose. As Chloe begins to learn the truth about her mother, what will she do?


Now, the trailer does not give everything away. It certainly appears that Diane is harming her child, but what if she's not? There are a lot more questions than answers provided by the trailer. What does seem certain is that fans think Paulson is going to rock the role.

For fans of American Horror Story who have seen Paulson blossom over nearly a decade of different roles in the anthology series, this role is highly anticipated. Many of Paulson's fans are excited to see her in a high-tension, high-stakes story.

Speaking of American Horror Story, the lineup for the upcoming season has been released, and fans are totally ecstatic about the news. Season 10 will feature a new face in Macaulay Culkin.

Other familiar faces are returning, including Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, and of course, Paulson. Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock are all set to appear. Fans are still waiting to hear more about the upcoming theme for the season as well as additional casting details.

You can catch Run on Mother's Day, which is May 8. Run was written by director Chaganty alongside Sev Ohanian. It is produced by Lionsgate. Chaganty and Torin Borrowdale will work together again, as Borrowdale composed the music for Run as well as for Searching. While the film was meant to come out in January 2020, the new release date is especially fitting.

Regardless of whether you have kept up with Paulson on American Horror Story or you are excited to see another portrayal of what looks like Munchausen's by proxy, the film promises that "you can't escape a mother's love."
