KINDS OF KINDNESS

Yorgos Lanthimos’s latest film KINDS OF KINDNESS fresh from the 2024 Cannes Film Festival is a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader. Featuring a stacked cast, including frequent collaborators Emma Stone and Willem Dafoe, as well as Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Jesse Plemons and more.

“Had Cannes cheering for its unapologetic bizarreness…. It’s a movie that laughs in the face of a happy ending, refusing to let you get too comfortable. It is evil in the best way.” —Esther Zuckerman, Daily Beast

“Visually, and technically, this stripped-back Yorgos Lanthimos film is a pleasure to watch…. What does it all mean? It’s unlikely audiences will have much of a clue. Humanity, darkness, opportunism, need? The final track leaves no doubt that viewers have been scrabbling about at the bottom of a very dark well for almost three hours. But the surprise is that they will probably come back to peer at it again.” —Fionnuala Halligan, ScreenDaily 

“A surreal tale on the fringes of conventional reality…. You may laugh here or there, but you’ll be thinking more about the choices these characters take and the inherent pain they endure much longer than Stone’s celebratory dancing in a parking lot. Not that we’ll ever complain about dancing or dogs in a Lanthimos movie.” —Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
