It’s been some sixteen years since his last film the Oscar Nominated Little Children but writer/director Todd Field is back with Tár and what looks like a real humdinger.
Cate Blanchett stars as renowned (and highly fictional) composer Lydia Tár, in the film regarded as the first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra. and, it’s clear from this latest teaser that she’s up against a moment of crisis. Field wrote the role specifically for Blanchett.
Lydia has a girlfriend played by Nina Hoss and after Blanchett’s Oscar-nominated performance in Carol, it will ensure that this new movie will be a must-see to queer audiences.
Blanchett said “I play a conductor of a celebrated German orchestra, and my name is Lydia Tar. It’s about, a sort of fall from grace, a come to Jesus moment and about the creative process, and about power, so it’s really interesting.”
“TÁR” is set to screen at major fall festivals in Venice and NYFF before Focus Features releases it in US theaters October 7
