Event Description

Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) directs Brendan Fraser’s comeback as a writing professor trying to reconnect with his teenage daughter.

In a Zoom writing seminar, Charlie appears as a blacked out square. In effect, he’s a recluse, eating himself into an early grave, and obsessed by a student essay on Moby Dick. His only contact with the outside world is his spiky friend Liz… until two characters arrive on his doorstep: a strange young Christian evangelist, and Charlie’s rage-fuelled daughter Ellie (Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink) whom he abandoned when he fell in love with a man and left his wife.

DIRECTOR: Darren Aronofsky
