A24 has scored a coup as they land a deal for North American distributors rights for the Robert Pattinson led sci-fi drama High Life.
The film opened a the Toronto Film Festival this past Sunday and marks French filmmaker Claire Denis’ long-anticipated English-language debut. High Life is set in deep space, where a group of criminals head toward a black hole. The spaceship’s crew is a collection of dangerous prisoners. Monte (Pattinson) is the only crew member awake as the voyage unfolds in solitude, tending to the ship to keep them all alive as they hurtle through space. And also caring for a baby daughter, Willow, who was born on board. As the crew awakens, conflicts and chaos ensue.
The film also stars Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth and André Benjamin. Script was written by Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau and Geoff Cox.
