Passages (18) (AD)

A man and a woman embrace intimately in bed.

In Ira Sachs' seductive romance, a same-sex marriage is thrown in to disarray when one man falls for a younger woman.

From American director Ira Sachs comes Passages, a Paris-based drama about a same sex marriage descending into chaos, when a man (Franz Rogowski) falls in love with a woman (Adèle Exarchopoulos), causing a serious rift with his husband (Ben Wishaw).

Praised by critics for its modern and realistic portrayal of the nuances of relationships, Passages sees Sachs bridge his usually tender style with a uniquely European sensibility, providing an insightful and authentic take on the complexities, contradictions and cruelties of love and desire.

Passages premiered at Sundance in January.

‘Doesn’t shy away from desire at its most carnal and embodied‘
‘A messy little movie about a specifically awful brand of narcissist who will be frighteningly familiar to many of us who have known him and even more so to those who might well be him.‘
