description

Monte (Robert Pattinson) and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew—death-row inmates led by a doctor (Juliette Binoche) with sinister motives—has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unravelled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole. From French director Claire Denis, HIGH LIFE won the FIPRESCI Prize at the San Sebastián International Film Festival.
