Rating and Content Advisory

14A | Sexual Content. Scenes containing graphic sexual content and nudity.

Passages begins with German filmmaker Tomas meticulously crafting a scene. He requires perfection to be satisfied and when the slightest error occurs, he loses his temper. After the film wraps, Tomas’ desire for control seeps into his personal life. Unsatisfied in his long-term marriage with Martin, Tomas launches into an impulsive sexual affair with a young woman named Agathe. When their one-night stand grows into something more, the two men are left to wonder if their crumbling marriage can survive. The latest work by acclaimed filmmaker Ira Sachs follows three people caught in a love triangle marked by passion, jealousy, and narcissism.
