Master French filmmaker Claire Denis’s long-anticipated English-language debut and provocative sci-fi drama stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, and André Benjamin as a group of criminals sent into deep space.
The destination is the black hole within closest reach of Earth. The spaceship’s crew is a collection of dangerous prisoners, last-chancers with nothing left to lose. At first Monte (Robert Pattinson) is the only crew member awake, rigorously tending to the ship to keep them all alive as they hurtle through space. But Monte is also caring for a baby daughter, born on board. As Monte's self-discipline slips, the crew awakens and conflicts erupt.
Working again with the brilliant Juliette Binoche, Denis guides her actors into daring new territory, pushing 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.
