Premiering at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone of Interest is one of the big movies of the year that has been getting a lot of talk at film festivals.
At Cannes, the WWII drama not only received rave reviews but also won the Grand Prix, the festival’s second-highest honor (after the Palme d’Or, which went to Anatomy of a Fall this year).
In light of this, many believe that The Zone of Interest will be one of the many Oscar contenders this year, right up there with Killers of the Flower Moon, Oppenheimer, Maestro, and others.
The outcome will be determined by time, but until then, here is all the information you require regarding The Zone of Interest.
Zone of Interest Release Date
The Zone of Interest will have a limited release on December 15 in the United States before extending to additional cities and areas in the weeks that follow. On February 2, 2024, the film will have its premiere in the United Kingdom.
The plot for the Zone of Interest
Martin Amis’s book of the same name served as the inspiration for The Zone of Interest. According to A24, below is the plot summary of the film:
“The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.”
The script that was adapted was written by Jonathan Glazer.
Trailer for The Zone of Interest
Zone of Interest had its global premiere at Cannes on May 19, and it will appear in the US on December 8, 2023. A24 released the official trailer for the historical drama to American audiences right before it was released.
Critics have described the picture as terrifying, and the brief but dramatic and disturbing trailer backs up their claims. In addition, the trailer is expertly made to the point that it effectively evokes fear and suspense without showing any graphic horror scenes.
The soundtrack and captions hint at something more than meets the eye, while at first glance it appears to be a collection of joyful family moments. The teaser for Zone of Interest suggests a disturbing picture that starts quite ordinary but gradually escalates to a horrific and unfathomable climax.
Who is in the Cast of The Zone of Interest?
The film, which marks Christian Friedel’s Rudolf and Sandra Hüller’s Hedwig, is a loose adaptation of the 2014 novel of the same name by Martin Amis. Sascha Maaz, Ralph Herforth, and Daniel Holzberg are among the other cast members. The entire film was shot in Poland and Germany by cinematographer Łukasz Żal.
