From producer-writer-director Todd Field, TÁR follows the titular character Lydia Tár played by goddess Cate Blanchett. The story follows the iconic musician and examines the changing nature of power, its impact and durability in our modern world.

Sounds like a dramatic thrill of anxiety… and the trailer is testimony to that.

TÁR premiered in September at the Venice International Film Festival, marking Field’s return to narrative features since 2006’s critically acclaimed Little Children.

Blanchett is joined by Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Sophie Kauer, Julian Glover, Allan Corduner, and Mark Strong. Focus Features is set to release TÁR in select theaters October 7 and nationwide October 28.
