Claire Denis: director, auteur and master of bold, sensual, boundary-breaking cinema makes her English-language debut with this daring sci-fi drama.
To avoid imprisonment, a group of criminals volunteer for a mysterious space mission, investigating black holes. Amongst them is Monte (Robert Pattinson), Boyse (Mia Goth), Tchemy (Andre 3000) and Dibs (Juliette Binoche), the ships doctor who has her own sinister motivations for being aboard. Lightyears from earth, they find themselves in an unimaginable situation when cosmic rays hit the ship.
This fearlessly unique film reconfigures sci-fi tropes to create something that is startlingly fresh. It received rapturous praise after its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival, prompting comparisons to Kubrick and Tarkovsky, and promises to be one of the most daring and brilliant films of the year.
