Patricia Clarkson stars as a New Orleans detective trying to solve a murder mystery in director Carol Morley's unmissable adaptation of Martin Amis' novel Night Train.

When homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson) is called to investigate the murder of a leading astrophysicist and black hole expert, she is confronted by a mystery that begins to affect her in ways she has never expected. As the investigation deepens, a darker world is slowly revealed and she must use all her skills and experience to piece together fragments of a wider conspiracy that lies behind the murder - and a mystery behind the universe itself.

A cosmic neo-noir like no other, this is a super intelligent, super stylish (and pretty offbeat) exploration of existence - and human nature itself. Enjoy!
