Kinds of Kindness

New York Times Critics' Pick
164 mins.
Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos

Last day Thursday, July 18.

KINDS OF KINDNESS is a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.

The new film from Yorgos Lanthimos (POOR THINGS, THE FAVOURITE) stars Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie, Hunter Schafer, and more.

“This strange world calls for delicious off-kilter performances, and the cast—particularly Stone, who’s proven her mettle in this regard, and Plemons—deliver. If you think you know what’s happening in a scene, just wait.” Alissa Wilkinson. A New York Times Critic's Pick!

Winner of Best Actor (Jesse Plemons) at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.
