Tár (15)

Dir: Todd Field | USA / Germany | 2022 | 158 mins
Cast | Cate Blanchett, Nina Hoss, Noémie Merlant 

Please note the screenings on Thursday 16th January will be captioned.

From writer-producer-director Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children) comes this austere, ferocious psychological epic starring Cate Blanchett as formidable maestro Lydia Tár, the groundbreaking celebrity conductor of a major German orchestra. Tár is at the height of her career, preparing for both a book launch and a much-anticipated live performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony that will seal her greatness in the public eye. But throughout the ensuing weeks, the elements of her life seem to be conspiring against her, as she begins to unravel in a singularly modern way. 

A searing, sophisticated examination of the dynamics of ego and power with elements of gothic horror and bone dry comedy, TÁR co-stars Nina Hoss and Portrait of a Lady on Fire’s Noémie Merlant alongside Blanchett, who delivers a a captivating, career-best performance as the mesmerising and monstrous Tár.
