Cate Blanchett seems poised for her third Oscar for this searing portrait of a fictitious conductor.
Considered one of the greatest living composer-conductors, Lydia Tár is very first female director of a major German orchestra. At the height of her career, she is preparing both a book launch and much-anticipated live performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony. Over the ensuing weeks her life begins to unravel in a modern way.
