The new film by legendary master filmmaker Terrence Malick. In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples – struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) – chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
Malick sets up a contrast between nature and grace, between the base and the divine, the profane and the godly. A deceptively simple and affecting look at regret, forgiveness and the human condition, told in a way only Malick could. It's a haunting, doleful meditation on sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the type of movie that can deeply move you and leave you wondering why, filled with Malick's usual trademarks: beautiful wanderings, poetic thoughts, an existential portrait of longing.
The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (portrayed by two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned - and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance - and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE achieves its grandeur through its attentiveness to the shifts and flickers of the soul. Both riveting and inspiring, THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE comes as a welcome reminder in this time of uncertainty that even in the face of astonishing evil, humanity and goodness can also rise to the occasion and makes a strong case for a simple truth: inhuman brutality can only be counteracted by steady compassion and kindness.
Olivier Assayas, the internationally-acclaimed director of Clouds of Sils Maria and Summer Hours, returns with this ethereal and mysterious ghost story starring Kristen Stewart as a high-fashion personal shopper to the stars who is also a spiritual medium. Grieving the recent death of her twin brother, she haunts his Paris home, determined to make contact with him.
As much a study of solitude, intimacy and otherworldly longings as it is a contemporary ghost story, the film is both genuinely scary and psychologically serious. Bolstered by an exceptional performance from Kristen Stewart, PERSONAL SHOPPER is a riveting, impossible-to-shake masterwork that leaves the audience spooked, not by its telling but by its commitment to abstract themes of grief, solitude and coming of age.
