Poster for the film PASSAGES

Passages

Celebrated filmmaker Ira Sachs (Love is Strange) makes a breathtaking return with Passages, a fresh, honest, and brutally funny take on messy modern relationships starring Franz Rogowski (Great Freedom), Ben Whishaw (Women Talking), and Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Colour). Set in Paris, this seductive drama tells the story of Tomas (Rogowski) and Martin (Whishaw), a gay couple whose marriage is thrown into crisis when Tomas begins a passionate affair with Agathe (Exarchopoulos), a younger woman he meets after completing his latest film.

Perceptive, intimate, and unashamedly sexy, Passages sees Sachs bridge his usually tender style with a uniquely European sensibility, providing an insightful and authentic take on the complexities, contradictions, and cruelties of love and desire.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

"An achingly beautiful film that’s sexy, sad and so very French."
Stephen A. Russell, Time Out
"Adroit casting, writing, editing, performing and costuming shade the outline of an affair to a finely sharpened emotional realism, the cycles of fighting and reconciling we’ve all seen before regaining in rawness as if we’re now the ones living through it."
Charles Bramesco, The Playlist
