CONTEST: Attend the Toronto Premiere of Beau is Afraid!

If the concept of a decades-spanning surrealist horror film set in an alternate present starring Joaquin Phoenix appeals to you in any way, then you might want to pay attention.

We have 10 tickets to the Toronto premiere of Beau is Afraid, the latest film from director/writer Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) happening on Wednesday, April 19th at the Scotiabank Theatre. Aster will be in attendance and introduce the film.

After the unexpected passing of his mother, a timid yet anxiety-ridden man (Phoenix) must confront his deepest fears as he sets out on an extraordinary, Kafkaesque journey to return home. Along the way, he faces a series of surreal and daunting obstacles that challenge his very existence, forcing him to question his reality and his place in the world. Will he find the strength to overcome his fears and make it back to his loved ones, or will he succumb to the darkness that threatens to consume him?

Beau is Afraid hits theatres on April 21, but That Shelf and Sphere Films want to send some lucky fans to see an advanced screening on Wednesday, April 19 in Toronto.
