When Beau’s mother dies, he decides to trek back home and get some closure. Along the way, he is introduced to some of his greatest fears as the seemingly normal trip turns into a surreal adventure. As he struggles with overbearing anxiety, Beau must confront his past and the overbearing mother that may be the root of his problems. Ari Aster writes and directs the comedy-drama co-starring Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Ryan.
