1913, Írisz has boarded a train to Budapest, she tells people she has a dream of working as a milliner in her late parents’ legendary hat making shop. However, as soon as she arrives it transpires that she has a different motive — her brother who worked there has gone missing, and she begins an investigative journey deep into the dark underbelly of Hungary’s turbulent society that is churning itself to the brink of the First World War.
Following on from his BAFTA and Oscar®-winning masterpiece Son of Saul, writer-director László Nemes returns with another exquisite piece of cinema that is as much about family bonds as it is about the breathtaking spectacle captured with his unique, signature style.
