Charlotte Rampling demonstrates her command and restraint in this heart-breaking study of a woman disintegrating, winning her the Best Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival.
When Hannah’s husband is arrested, her connections, and her life, begin to unravel.
Reminiscent of the work of Michael Haneke and Chantal Akerman, this elusive character study is another superb late-career showcase alongside 45 Years.
