Stars at Noon

(2022, dir. Claire Denis, w/ Margaret Qualley, Joe Alwyn, John C. Reilly)

Stars at Noon will finish at approximately 8:08pm.

In this swooning, sexually charged adaptation of Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel, Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, MIFF 2019) stars as an American journalist drifting through a boozy haze in Nicaragua. While there, a side hustle in sexual favours leads her into a hot and heavy liaison with a mysterious English businessman (Alwyn, The Favourite, The Souvenir: Part II) – and into a web of political espionage from which both desperately seek to escape.
