An unmissable neo-noir, Carol Morley’s (Falling, Dreams of a Life) Out of Blue premiered at Toronto Film Festival in 2018. With hints of Roman Polanski’s Chinatown and the most thrilling works of Nicolas Roeg, this brilliantly stylised thriller follows a detective in search of a truth that may destabilise not only her view of the world, but her very being. When homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is called to investigate the murder of a leading astrophysicist (Mamie Gummer) in New Orleans, she’s confronted by a mystery that begins to affect her in ways she didn’t expect. As the investigation deepens, a darker world slowly reveals itself, and Hoolihan must use all her skills to piece together the fragments of a wider conspiracy.
