Trailer Review

STARR · RHINEBECK

Opens May 10

A whirlwind dark comedy about a stressed-out production assistant with the daunting task of casting a safety video in Bucharest. When one of the interviewees makes a scandalous statement that cracks the project, our hero is left to put the pieces back together before her shadowy and powerful bosses fire her. (dir. Radu Jude, Romania/Croatia/France/Luxembourg, 2024, 163 m)

“With thrilling dexterity and acerbic wit, finds a way to mock crass commercialism, cultural misogyny, corporate greed, worker exploitation, bigotry, social media hate, and the many systems and forces conspiring to crush us all.” —The Daily Beast
