After his mother’s sudden death, an anxiety-ridden man named Beau (Joaquin Phoenix) sets off back to his hometown for her funeral. But a series of inexplicable supernatural encounters along the way transform his journey into an epic odyssey, one which spans the entirety of his life and forces him to confront his darkest fears.

Taking place largely in a fantastical, surrealist world within Beau’s mind as he attempts to resolve decades of generational trauma, this is the latest twisted-yet-poignant film from acclaimed horror director Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar). And at three hours, it will test you much like Beau – but with hopefully less permanent mental scarring!
