In the wasteland of Cold War-era Poland love can be a hard thing to come by — and even more difficult to keep. Two people — one a musical director, the other a young singer — find themselves becoming romantically entangled. With their completely different backgrounds and personalities, the two struggle against themselves and the world they live in to stay together. Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski, Cold War stars Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, and is playing select theaters now.
Robert Pattinson leads Claire Denis' first English-language film High Life. The sci-fi horror follows a group of criminals who were tricked into boarding a spaceship heading toward a black hole looking for alternate energy. Things get weird when the onboard doctor Juliette Binoche starts conducting experiments of her own. Also starring Mia Goth and André 3000, the film is set for a U.S. release on April 12, 2019.
