Beau Is Afraid

Ari Aster has created an ODYSSEY OF MADNESS that will have you second guessing every frame. ” Daniel Baptista, The Movie Podcast

Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) returns with his third A24 collaboration, an ingeniously depraved new film, BEAU IS AFRAID. Academy-award winner Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) stars in the highly anticipated surreal horror-comedy.

The film follows Beau (Phoenix), a paranoid and anxiety-ridden man who embarks on a bizarre and epic odyssey to return home to his mother. On his adventures, Beau is forced to face his darkest fears in strange, fantastical worlds bursting with colour and confusion.

Aster’s foray into comedy cements himself as one of the contemporary greats in surrealist cinema.
