László Nemes · Hungary · 2018 · 142 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Shot in 35mm, the latest from László Nemes (Son of Saul) focuses on a young woman eager to work as a milliner at the legendary hat store that belonged to her late parents, but when she is turned away by the new owner, she embarks on a quest to uncover her lost past.

László Nemes's first film since his Son of Saul, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2016, is an equally impressive piece of filmmaking.

In the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the early 1910s, immediately preceding the First World War, the enigmatic Írisz Leiter (Juli Jakab), while young and beautiful, carries the weight of the past with her. Visiting an elegant Budapest department store that specializes in women's hats, she is immediately noticed and a stir is created. This sense of unease and disquiet becomes the modus operandi of the entire film. The store used to belong to Írisz's parents. Her visit is a voyage back into her past and childhood. Furthermore, she is about to unearth more dark and troubling secrets about her family. 

Nemes recreates the pre-World War I era in all its sensual detail - the attention to high fashion and the art of millinery here rivals those of Phantom Thread.
