With two feature films to his credit (“In the Bedroom” and “Little Children”) that received a combined eight Academy Award nominations, director Todd Field is back with his third feature ‘TÁR’. The film is expected to world premiere at the upcoming Venice Film Festival.
Starring Cate Blanchett as the fictional Lydia Tar, an acclaimed composer/conductor and first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra, the film is set in the international world of classical music.
Although the recently released teaser/trailer gives little away about the plot, the film centers on Lydia Tar, her career as a woman composer, who is at a pivotal point in her career and is in the process of recording a symphony that will further her stature in the world of music.
“TÁR” Opens in Cinemas on October 7th – Watch the Trailer
The first look feels more like an experimental trailer. The whole setup seems to be an artistic take on the life of a fictional music composer. Nevertheless, the film would be worth watching considering Cate Blanchett’s performances in some of her earlier roles, as well as the narrative style of Todd Field and the success of his past two films at the Oscars.
Composer Hildur Guðnadóttir, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for “Joker,” will score the picture, while Todd Field has written and co-produced the film other than directing the film.
