“With his unusually accomplished directorial debut, Corbet delivers a strange and startling film.”~IndieWire

Aroview: Based loosely on a Jean-Paul Sartre short story and also John Fowles' novel, The Magus, this arresting arthouse directing debut for American actor Brady Corbet is also notable for having a rare music score by the reclusive yet legendary Scott Walker.

It chronicles the childhood of an American boy living in France with his authoritarian parents who witnesses the creation of the Treaty of Versailles, which shapes his beliefs and causes him to develop a terrifying ego.
