Celebrated filmmaker Ira Sachs makes a breathtaking return with Passages, a fresh, honest and brutally funny take on messy, modern relationships. Starring Franz Rogowski, Ben Whishaw and Adèle Exarchopoulos, this Paris-set drama tells the story of Tomas (Rogowski) and Martin (Whishaw), a gay couple whose marriage is thrown into crisis when Tomas begins an affair with Agathe (Exarchopoulos), a younger woman he meets after completing his latest film. Perceptive, intimate and unashamedly sexy, Sachs bridges his usually tender style with a uniquely European sensibility, providing an insightful and authentic take on the complexities, contradictions and cruelties of love and desire.
