From Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) comes a delirious journey into the unknown: the story of a man who sets out to visit his mother and discovers a world of malevolent forces and unseen eyes tracking his every move.
Dense with meaning and aimed squarely at confronting the emotional chaos and collective uncertainty of our present day, Beau is Afraid follows one man’s odyssey through the depths of the end of history, finding horror and humour at every turn.
“Beau Is Afraid is all clatter and stress and movement, but the director is in control throughout, engineering both comic set pieces and existential show trials with equal invention.” - Donald Clarke, Irish Times.
