NYC newlyweds Jude (Girls’ Adam Driver) and Mina (I Am Love’s Alba Rohrwacher) have a seemingly perfect relationship, but things take an unsettling turn with the birth of their son. Convinced that the baby must be kept free of all contaminants, Mina develops fanatical obsessions with veganism, cleanliness and purity that may kill the child unless Jude can stop her. With stunning performances, this intense psychological drama suggests that sometimes a parent’s love might just be the scariest thing of all. Official selection: Toronto International Film Festival
