PVRINOX PICTURES, the largest distributor of Independent foreign language films in India, is thrilled to announce the release of Beau is Afraid today. Written and directed by Ari Aster, this latest thriller stars Academy Award-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix along with Nathan Lane, Amy Ryan, Stephen McKinley Henderson among more, and is produced by Lars Knudsen and Ari Aster himself.
The film follows the story of Beau Wassermann, played by Oscar-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix, a paranoid man who embarks on a journey to visit his mother. The trip takes an unexpected turn as Beau finds himself facing malevolent forces and unseen eyes tracking his every move. The film is an exploration of the emotional chaos and collective uncertainty of our present day and features both horror and humour.
Beau Wassermann is a character that springs to life on screen in ways few fictional characters have. His virtuoso performance transcends from the physical, emotional and psychological, often within the same scene, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of anxiety, fear and paranoia.
Writer-director of Beau is Afraid, Ari Aster is known for his previous works “Hereditary” and “Midsommar.” In Beau is Afraid, Ari creates a character study about an unlived life, a hero’s journey for a man whose disposition and temperament are uniquely unsuited to the challenges of dealing with his surroundings, family, and his own interior life.
PVRINOX Pictures is excited to bring Beau is Afraid to audiences across India, a must-watch film for anyone who loves a good thriller.
