Crimes of the Future

As the human species adapts to an increasingly synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux, The French Dispatch), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen, marking his fourth collaboration with Cronenberg after A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, and A Dangerous Method) is a celebrity performance artist who publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs during avant-garde happenings. Meanwhile, Timlin (Kristen Stewart, Spencer), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks the duo’s movements. Amidst these efforts, a mysterious group is revealed. Their mission: use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution. The latest from beloved Canadian provocateur David Cronenberg (Crash, eXistenZ, Scanners), Crimes of the Future is the hotly-anticipated return to the filmmaker’s transgressive, body-horror roots.
