Beau is Afraid – 2023

Joaquin Phoenix (prounced wah-keen) stars in this 2023 surrealist art film called Beau is Afraid, where ever irrational fear seems to come to life partially fueled on by his mother and partially by his inability to have sex.

Beau is a middle aged man who never lived up to this mothers expectations and as a result lives his life in constant fear. He lives in a terrifying neighbourhood and is hell bent on attending his mothers funeral, but a series of tragedies unfold that prevent him making it on time.

Directed and Written by Ari Aster, and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Patty Lupone, Amy Ryan, Stephen Henderson, Parker Posey, Armen Nahapetian and Julia Antonelli. Cameo appearance from Julian Richings.
