High Life

France | 2019 | 110 minutes | Claire Denis

Opens April 19, 2019

Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to space. The crew has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive.

Working again with the brilliant Juliette Binoche, supported by a cast that includes André Benjamin and Mia Goth, Denis guides her actors into daring new territory. Some scenes in High Life may shock, but they are only steps on the path to the revelation this film offers. Denis pushes her own space exploration into realms that at times recall the science fiction of Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky. But this film carries a fearless curiosity that is Denis's own.
