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 unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole.

A staggering and primal film about love and intimacy, suffused with anguished memories of a lost Earth, HIGH LIFE is a haunting, thrilling achievement (and the first English-language feature) from visionary director Claire Denis (LET THE SUNSHINE IN, WHITE MATERIAL, TROUBLE EVERY DAY).
