From the director of Hereditary and Midsommar comes a new surrealist black horror-comedy starring Joaquin Phoenix, Nathan Lane, Amy Ryan, Parker Posey, and Patti LuPone.

The story follows Beau (Joaquin Phoenix), who sets out to visit his mother and discovers a world of malevolent forces and unseen eyes tracking his every move.

Dense with meaning and aimed squarely at confronting the emotional chaos and collective uncertainty of our present day, Beau is Afraid follows one man’s odyssey through the depths of the end of history, finding horror and humour at every turn.

"Beau is Afraid is challenging, yes, but its reward is the way it uses art as a lightning rod. Love it or hate it, you're not going to forget it." Detroit News
