High Life

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Most definitely NOT your average everyday sci-fi space epic, HIGH LIFE stars international acting icons from Robert Pattinson (TWILIGHT) to Juliette Binoche (THE ENGLISH PATIENT) and is directed by perhaps the most original and iconoclastic European auteur of our time, Claire Denis (CHOCOLAT, LET THE SUNSHINE IN, BEAU TRAVAIL). The result is like nothing you’ve seen before. Monte (Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew—death-row inmates led by a doctor ( Binoche) with sinister motives—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. “By twisting around preconceptions of what an outer-space epic should be, French auteur Claire Denis returns to the fertile ground of her Trouble Every Day era, using genre to dig beneath themes that others would only treat as skin-deep.” —Toronto Globe and Mail.
