Carmen (15)

Friday 7th July 2023 - Thursday 13th July 2023

Dir. Benjamin Millepied, US/France, 2023, 117 mins, some subtitles. Cast. Melissa Barrera, Paul Mescal, Rossi di Palma.

Melissa Barrera and Academy Award nominee Paul Mescal are dazzling in Benjamin Millepied’s modern-day retelling of one of history’s most famous love stories and operas. Carmen follows a young and fiercely independent woman who is forced to flee her home in the Mexican desert following the brutal murder of her mother. After surviving a dangerous illegal border crossing into the US, Carmen is confronted by a lawless volunteer border guard. When he and his patrol partner, Aidan (Paul Mescal) – a Marine with PTSD – become embroiled in a deadly standoff, Carmen and Aidan are forced to escape together, ultimately finding solace and love in one another.

This bold, dreamlike cinematic interpretation of Bizet’s opera features a stunning score by acclaimed composer Nicholas Britell. This is an inspired magical realist triumph.
