The Light

by Tom Tykwer

Writer-Director Tom Tykwer (Babylon Berlin, Run Lola Run) returns to the big screen with The Light, starring acclaimed actors Lars Eidinger and Nicolette Krebitz and introducing Tala al Deen.

A portrait of a modern family between collapse and new beginnings dealing with the big issues of our times, in a world that is reeling. Tim, Milena, their almost grown-up twins Frieda and Jon and their illegitimate son Dio - this is the Engels family, who seemingly have nothing left to hold them together when housekeeper Farrah enters their lives. The mysterious Syrian woman puts the Engels' emotional world to an unexpectedly wild test.
