STARRING CATE BLANCHETT
From writer-producer-director Todd Field comes TÁR, starring Cate Blanchett as Lydia TÁR, the groundbreaking conductor of a major German Orchestra. We meet Tár at the height of her career, as she's preparing both a book launch and much-anticipated live performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony. Over the ensuing weeks her life begins to unravel in a singularly modern way. The result is a searing examination of power, and its impact and durability in today's society. 2h 38m. Rated R.
“This tale of ambition and its cost — and its collateral damage — is Blanchett’s movie, and she delivers a tour de force in every scene.” Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
