HIGH LIFE

Celebrated French auteur Claire Denis makes her English language debut in a sci-fi epic starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, and Andre Benjamin.

ALP is proud to present HIGH LIFE: Deep space. Beyond our solar system. Monte and his infant daughter Willow live together in complete isolation aboard a spacecraft. The crew were prisoners; death row inmates turned space convicts. Guinea pigs sent on a mission to the black hole closest to Earth. Monte is a solitary man, a loner whose strict self-discipline has protected him against desire — his own and that of others. Dibs, the ship’s domineering matriarch, seduces him for an experimental pregnancy. Monte becomes a father against his will, causing chaos and jeopardizing the mission.

Now only Monte and Willow remain. And Monte is changed. Through his daughter, for the first time, he experiences the emergence of an all-powerful love. Willow grows, becoming a young woman who knows no other reality. Together, yet deeply alone, father and daughter approach their destination — the black hole in which all time and space cease to exist.
