    Starring:  Javier Bardem, Elle Fanning, Branka Kati
    Running time:  1h 45mins (the full programme, including ads and trailers)

    A day in the life of Leo (Javier Bardem) who lives in New York City, and finds himself floating through alternate lives that he could have potentially lived, leading his daughter, Molly (Elle Fanning) to wrestle with her future paths.

    "Potter’s film preaches a variant of the 'you can’t stop what’s coming' ethos articulated in No Country for Old Men (a Coen brothers’ movie for which Bardem won an Oscar), and it insists that whatever joys are in living, its miseries are heartbreaking and potent." The New York Times
