Todd Field’s sophisticated and intelligent drama charts the downfall of composer-conductor Lydia Tár (Blanchett), a once in a generation talent and first female maestro of the Berlin Philharmonic.

Cate Blanchett’s searing performance brings this fictional character to life, and will surely see her tipped for Oscar success.
