This poetic, image-driven space thriller stars Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche.
Dir Claire Denis
With Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth
A Thunderbird release
A man (a career-best Pattinson) and a charming baby are the last two survivors on a once-chaotic spaceship full of convicts. Their government-issued mission – to harvest energy from black holes, overseen by the foxy Dr Dibs (Binoche) – is overwhelmed by feral dynamics that shift between violent and erotic. Juliette Binoche channels unabashed sensuality in one unforgettable sequence. Featuring a haunting score by Denis’ long-term musician collaborator, Stuart Staples, this is poetic, image-driven cinema that defies convention to embrace something wilder.
