Robert Pattinson & Juliette Binoche Head Into Space In First Trailer For Claire Denis' HIGH LIFE

First look at the sci-fi drama.


Arguably France's most high-profile female filmmaker, Claire Denis makes her full English language debut with sci-fi drama High Life.

The film stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth and Andre Benjamin in a tale of prisoners sent out to deep space and involuntary insemination. Not your average sci-fi blockbuster.

High Life doesn't have a UK/ROI release date yet but you can check out the film's French trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Deep space. Beyond our solar system. Monte and his infant daughter Willow live together aboard a spacecraft, in complete isolation. A solitary man, whose strict self-discipline is a protection against desire –his own and that of others– Monte fathered the girl against his will. His sperm was used to inseminate Boyse, the young woman who gave birth to her. They were members of a crew of prisoners: space convicts, death row inmates. Guinea pigs sent on a mission to the black hole closest to Earth. Now only Monte and Willow remain. And Monte is changed. Through his daughter, for the first time, he experiences the birth of an all-powerful love. Willow grows, becoming a young girl, then a young woman.
