High Life is Claire Denis’ first science fiction film, as well as her first in the English language. Starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche in the lead roles, it tells the story of a group of criminals sent on an alternative energy finding mission in space. Monte, one of the criminals on board previously had a daughter, Willow, against his will through artificial insemination, but comes to love her as they near the end of their journey.
The gorgeous, sci-fi score is by Stuart A. Staples (of The Tindersticks), a faithful collaborator to Claire Denis. The soundtrack also features the hypnotic lullaby Willow produced by Tindersticks and featuring Robert Pattinson on vocals.
A24 is releasing High Life in NY and LA on 04.05.2019
