Description

In the latest feature from acclaimed director Claire Denis, young American journalist Trish Johnson (Margaret Qualley) is stranded in present-day Nicaragua and falls for an enigmatic Englishman (Joe Alwyn) who seems like her best chance of escape. She soon realizes, though, that he may be in even greater danger than she is. Co-winner of the Grand Prix at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, this adaptation of Denis Johnson's 1986 novel is a contemporary thriller suffused with political intrigue and languid eroticism, moving entirely to the tactile rhythms of its actors, especially rising star Qualley, who gives a live-wire performance of fervid spontaneity and mercurial passion.
