Event Details

In this trippy, ethereal new film from visionary director Claire Denis (Beau Travail, White Material, this being her first film in English), Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are conscripted into a doomed and dangerous mission to the outer reaches of the solar system. The crew (including André Benjamin, formerly of Outkast), made up of death-row inmates and led by a doctor named Dibs (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives and gruesome techniques, has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole.

Far from a typical outer-space science fiction film, High Life avoids the visual-effects fireworks of the genre, preferring the minimalism of Yorick Le Saux’s spare cinematography and a score that hums away just at the corners of one’s hearing. A staggering and primal film about love and intimacy, suffused with anguished memories of a lost Earth, High Life is a haunting and intensely human experience.
