The Audition (2020)

Drama 1h 39m 2020

“Consistently, anxiously engrossing… unobtrusively immaculate” – Variety

“Nina Hoss rises impressively to the challenge, fully inhabiting the mind and body of the flawed perfectionist at the core of The Audition” – Screen International

An official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, THE AUDITION is a lyrical character study starring acclaimed German actress Nina Hoss (BARBARA, TV’s Homeland). Anna Bronsky is a violin teacher at a music-focused high school. Despite the opposition of all other teachers, Anna drives through the admission of a student in whom she detects a remarkable talent. Committed, she prepares him for the intermediate exam and neglects her family – her son, whom she brings into competition with her new student, and her husband. Meanwhile, a colleague with whom she is having an affair persuades her to join a quintet. When she fails during their own concert, pressure on Anna mounts and she focuses all her attention back on her young student’s progress. Come the day of his exam, events take a tragic turn.
