What's it about?

Renowned musician Lydia Tár is days away from recording the symphony that will elevate her career. However, Lydia's elaborate facade begins to unravel, revealing dirty secrets and the corrosive nature of power.

Why did we pick it?

Opening strong, calm and collected, writer/director Todd Field fuelled by Blanchett treats us to many long, often one take, sequences as Lydia proves with ease why she is a master of her craft. But the more we see Lydia in more private and intimate moments, we see the mask begin to slip as her egotistic intentions rise to the surface.
