New, award-winning film by Todd Fields (“In the Bedroom”, “Little Children”), starring Cate Blanchett, winner of two Oscars (“The Pilot”, “Blue Jasmine”) and, according to the film critics around the world, she has a very good chance to win Oscar for the third time for her role in this film.
A pulsating and mesmerizing drama, epic and intimate, that brings to the screen the story of Lydia Tár: a multi-award winning musician at the height of her career, who mange and conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra with a masterful hand and lives a seemingly normal family life. But at the same time, beneath the surface, the successful star hides dark secrets that threaten everything she has achieved.
By Blanchett’s side are two highly regarded European film stars:
Noémie Merlant (“Portrait of a Lady on Fire”, “Paris, 13th District”) and Nina Hoss (the series “Homeland” and Netflix’s “The Defeated” and the films: “Phoenix”, “Barbara” and “The Contractor”).
Before the screening, brief opening remarks.
