Beau Is Afraid (2023)

A paranoid man embarks on an epic odyssey to get home to his mother in this bold and ingeniously depraved new film from writer/director Ari Aster.


A24 distributes in the US.

Filmed in Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Previously known as Disappointment Blvd..

Written/directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar).

It’s rumored that this project may be related to the 2011 short from Ari Aster titled “Beau.” The short’s premise is as follows: A neurotic middle-aged man’s trip (to visit his mother) is delayed indefinitely when his keys are mysteriously taken from his door. He is subsequently haunted by an increasingly sinister chain of upsetting events.

This has been described as a “nightmare comedy.”

A24 releases Beau Is Afraid in theaters on April 21, 2023.
