The fractious family of a father and his two sons confront their different feelings and memories of their deceased wife and mother, a famed war photographer. Three years after her unexpected death, when an unsettling secret resurfaces, the three men are forced to look at each other in a new light.
In his English-language debut, Norwegian director Joachim Trier (The Worst Person in the World) meticulously pieces together this fragmented family drama. An ambitiously elliptical tragedy of memory and grief, the film stars Gabriel Byrne, Jesse Eisenberg, and none other than Isabelle Huppert.
