Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Lead Role – Cate Blanchett
Set in the international world of Western classical music, the film centers on Lydia Tár, widely considered one of the greatest living composer-conductors and the very first female director of a major German orchestra.
Cate Blanchett is one of my favorite actresses. I would listen to hear read the phone book. This is a very intelligent, deep, intense movie about working in the Arts, the sexual politics, the breaks that MAKE a career, and so much more. As someone with a classical music background, I thought the Writer did a great job of putting very esoteric music storylines into terms non-musical people could understand. I liked the rich, dark brown color palette used throughout.
How I Viewed It
See it on the Big Screen
However, a big, sprawling and Audio-driven movie like this REALLY should be seen (and heard) on the Big Screen in a community setting. I wish you had a Screening for me or (at the very least) offered Movie Cash.
