‘TÁR’ Trailer: Cate Blanchett Leads Todd Field’s First Film Since 2006

Entering the awards season, one film high on everyone’s list was TÁR. Todd Field’s first movie since 2006’s Little Children stars Oscar winner Cate Blanchett in what some reviews out of Venice are calling a virtuoso performance. And now a new trailer is here to give the rest of us more reason to be excited about its arrival.

The title comes from the central character, Blanchett’s renowned composer Lydia Tár, the first female conductor ever at a prestigious German. Despite her genius, there are dark secrets that threaten to destroy everything Lydia has built.

Joining Blanchett in the cast are Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Sophie Kauer, Julian Glover, Allan Corduner, and Mark Strong.

TÁR opens in theaters on October 7th, and with it will come a ton of Oscars expectations. Can it live up to those lofty goals?

From producer-writer-director Todd Field comes TÁR, starring Cate Blanchett as the iconic musician Lydia Tár. TÁR examines the changing nature of power, its impact and durability in our modern world.
