One of the most unique sci-fi movies that I saw last year is Claire Denis’ brilliant English-language feature debut High Life. The film premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival as was met with largely positive reviews.
Robert Pattinson leads the cast of the movie, the full synopsis for which you can read below. To look ahead to the release of the film in May, here’s a Pattinson featuring on the song Willow by Tindersticks, from the movie’s soundtrack.
The destination is the black hole within closest reach of Earth. The spaceship’s crew is a collection of dangerous prisoners, last-chancers with nothing left to lose. At first Monte (Robert Pattinson) is the only crew member awake, rigorously tending to the ship to keep them all alive as they hurtle through space. But Monte is also caring for a baby daughter, born on board. This anomaly is only the first sign of the chaos to come. As Monte’s self-discipline slips, the crew awakens and conflicts erupt.
Check out the video for the track below and High Life in cinemas across the country from 10th May. Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin and Mia Goth are also amongst the cast.
