Opens March 8

Oscar-nominated for Best International Feature. Two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey. Director Matteo Garrone’s latest  is his most vivid since his international breakthrough with Gomorrah 15 years ago. (dir. Matteo Garrone, Italy/Belgium/France, 2023, 121m)

While the landscapes are dazzling, Carnera’s camera always keeps the focus on the humans, sometimes specks seen from great distances moving through the sand and sometimes studied in close-ups that fill the widescreen canvas.” Hollywood Reporter
