Coming Soon

From László Nemes, the Academy Award-winning writer and director of Son of Saul, comes the sumptuous drama Sunset. In 1913 Budapest, in the heart of Europe as World War I approaches, the young Irisz Leiter (an entrancing Juli Jakab) arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at Leiter, the legendary hat store that once belonged to her late parents; but she is quickly sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill (Vlad Ivanov). While preparations are underway at the store to host important wealthy, royal guests, a man abruptly comes to Irisz looking for Kálmán Leiter, who he says is her brother. Refusing to leave the city, the young woman follows Kálmán’s tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark, dusty streets of Budapest, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall. (Fully subtitled)
