About this deal

Beau is then put on trial by his mother in front of a ring of spectator’s who act indifferent to the outcome. He has an air ticket to visit his mother on the anniversary of his father’s death – a prospect that cranks his anxiety levels up to 11. Ari Aster oblige, on s'attend à un film qui saura instaurer le malaise, valeur cardinale de ce réalisateur. This will be just in time to land for a little of the summer holiday movie market if it does well at the box office. Beau Is Afraid officially premiered in Los Angeles on April 10, 2023, at the Directors Guild of America, with Aster and the cast in attendance.

They are all stunningly virtuosic, idiosyncratic works, and they are all laudable reminders that, even now, auteurs are sometimes allowed to fulfil their wildest ambitions with no major restrictions. Check out our TV Guide or Streaming Guide to see what's on, or visit our Film hub for more news and features. Aster has described the film as "like a Jewish Lord of the Rings, but he's just going to his mom's house". After that it started dragging and it seemed to be trying too hard to make a point or be meaningful. From a stabby killer who is identified in police reports as “a circumcised white male” to throwaway sight gags that owe a debt to Airplane!The film had been in development by Ari Aster for some time, with a 2011 short film entitled Beau, that would later serve as the basis for a sequence in the feature film, and a 2014 draft of the script that circulated on the internet. There is a new face in the game alongside Pheonix with the teenage role of Beau played by Armen Nahapetian. Other actors in undisclosed roles are Nathan Lane as Roger, Amy Ryan as Grace, and Kylie Rogers as Toni. Joker star Joaquin Phoenix plays the lead role of Beau, while Armen Nahapetian plays the young version of his character.

She explains how she was testing to see if he was strong enough to make it back home to visit her and he failed. Following the sudden death of his mother, a mild-mannered but anxiety-ridden man confronts his darkest fears as he embarks on an epic, Kafkaesque odyssey back home. But when car-crash circumstance conspires to make Beau miss his plane, he embarks on a long day’s journey into fright, encountering absurd metaphorical manifestations of his miserable life.

I would say that if you enjoy dark fantasy and bizarre, sometimes shocking and horrific scenes, you might just love this film. Personally, I think Beau Is Afraid is best described as an amusingly patience-testing shaggy dog story that asks: “What if your mother could hear all those unspeakable things you tell your therapist?

Right now, it's unclear what she's referring to but it's clear Beau is a troubled character and the trailer follows him in a number of locations, some more abstract than others. However, we can take a lot from the trailer and Ari Aster’s previous films, Midsommar and Hereditary. After entering a cave, the boat's motor begins to stall, and he suddenly finds himself in a crowded arena. Mark Kermode's review for The Guardian found the film was "sprawlingly picaresque" and "a rambling, labyrinthine, navel-gazing romp. If you’ve seen the then you’ve probably got two question, what is the Beau Is Afraid UK release date and what the jinkies is it about.

In the beginning of the movie, the logo for the fictional Mona Wassermann corporation is shown after the distribution and production company logos, which further emphasizes that, much like Beau's world, Mona is in control of this film.

Aster setzt stellenweise ganz gezielt auf bestimmte Kameraeinstellungen, Klanguntermalungen, Bilder und Situationen, die negative Gefühle auslösen. Standing out in a summer of big-budget movies made by committee, few other films of this size have ever been as uncompromising.

On its own, this opening 45-minute section works as a profoundly misanthropic satirical farce about the stresses of contemporary city life, with more visual gags, and more male nudity, than most raucous Hollywood comedies. Originally from Northumberland, she graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a degree in Film Studies and moved to London to begin a career writing about entertainment. Beau Is Afraid is overstuffed to the point of erasing the line between self-flagellation and self-indulgence, but Ari Aster's bravura and Joaquin Phoenix's sheer commitment give this neurotic odyssey undeniable power.
