Lydia Tár is a prominent figure in the upper echelons of the classical music sphere and the first woman chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. Surrounded with devoted confidants, including wife and first-chair violinist Sharon (Nina Hoss) and doting personal assistant Francesca (Noémie Merlant; Portrait of a Lady on Fire, QSFF19), she’s safely ensconced in a bubble of her own making. But when murmurs of impropriety with a former protégé begin to surface, will her power and influence in this carefully curated world finally be called into question? Infused with a darkly comic streak, TÁR will leave you talking (and questioning) well after the credits have rolled.

Don’t miss your chance to see this surprising and timely film with a largely queer audience, against the backdrop of the stunning Sydney Harbour.
