A Fantastic Woman

February 2
When young waitress Marina falls in love with the much older Orlando, nothing matters but their love for one another. But with Orlando’s sudden passing, Marina is treated with vulgarity, forced to fight for her place in this world as a transgender woman. A Fantastic Woman is the Chilean entry for Best Foreign Film at the 2018 Academy Awards.

Early Man

February 16
A caveman named Dug is forced to unite his tribe as they stand their historical ground against the incoming Bronze Age. Early Man is the newest Claymation comedy from visionary Nick Park (Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run). Voiced by Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, and Tom Hiddleston, the film promises to be Park’s most cracking contraption yet.

Nostalgia

February 16
“Objects, memories, items that are tangible. These are our artifacts, our scars.” This drama from Mark Pellington tells a web of stories connected over time through love, loss and the objects we share with one another. If one thing’s clear from the trailer, it’s this: tears will be shed.

Annihilation

February 23
Alex Garland returns with his highly anticipated follow-up to 2015’s Ex Machina. Based off the novel of the same name (the first in a trilogy), a kaleidoscopic “shimmer” envelops a town’s surrounding forest, and a group of volunteer scientists journey within to search for the source of all this real-world surrealism. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac.

Hannah

February 23
Charlotte Rampling embodies Hannah, a woman coping with a newfound life of loneliness and struggle when faced with her husband’s imprisonment. What’s sure to be a paralyzing character study of an older woman crushed by denial, this TIFF + Venice Film Festival selection may very well give us Rampling at her absolute, soul-crushing best.
