What’s it about?
Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett) is widely considered one of the greatest living composer-conductors and the very first female director of a major German orchestra. The film follows the downfall of her career after misconduct allegations are made.
- Directed by Todd Field (Little Children)
- English, German, Filipino and French languages
- Runtime: 158 minutes
Why did it get this rating?
Offensive language is used in the film, such as words like “f**king” and “sh*t”.
While Tár’s intimate relationships are a major theme of the film, brief nudity is shown but not in a sexualised way.
There is a reference to suicide when a character ends her life. While none of this is seen on-screen it is made clear via email correspondence that she was dealing with significant distress in relation to her work and her relationship with Tár.
