Today Focus Features opens Tár, the strikingly original return of Todd Field, in four locations in NY and LA.

The film premiered at Venice winning star Cate Blanchett Best Actress as musician and conductor Lydia Tár. Early this week, it seemed to mesmerize a sold-out Allice Tully Hall at the New York Film Festival.

A 97% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, Deadline’s review here called Field’s first film since Little Children 16 years ago, a “daring and quite comprehensive immersion in a rarified world [that] features a lead performance the likes of which doesn’t come along very often.” Field wrote the part for Blanchett but at an NYFF Q&A he said he waited to send her the script until it was done and Focus chairman Peter Kujawski “asked me, ‘Who do you have in mind?’ I said I was still thinking about it.

Because I was superstitious. That she would say no.” No risk there. “I had never read a script like it,” Blanchett said of the film that examines the changing nature of power dynamics in the modern world through the lens of a major European orchestra and its flawed leader. “The screenplay read like a musical score,” she said.
