TÁR Teaser Trailer: Cate Blanchett Stars in Todd Field’s Directorial Comeback
From the early to mid-2000s, writer-director Todd Field delivered two incredible dramas set in American suburbia, In The Bedroom and Little Children. For about a decade and a half since then, no one has heard anything new from the Oscar-nominated filmmaker, even though he worked on some projects that fell through. But now, he finally returns with his new Germany-set drama, TÁR. With Cate Blanchett as the titular character, Field directs from his own original screenplay which is now set for an October 7 release from Focus Features.
The official synopsis reads: “Set in the international world of classical music, [the film] centers on Lydia Tár, widely considered one of the greatest living composer/conductors and first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra.” The film also stars Mark Strong, Nina Hoss, Noémie Merlant, and features a score by Oscar winner Hildur Guðnadóttir (Joker) and cinematography by Florian Hoffmeister.
