A young woman with superpowers as strange as they are dangerous escapes from a psychiatric hospital and tries to fend for herself in the neon-lit streets of New Orleans. Along the way, she befriends a stripper, who she helps to protect from abusive men. Following A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT and inspired by fantasy and adventure films of the 1980s, Iranian-American director Ana Lily Amirpour once again creates a nocturnal, powerful and surprising genre film that draws you in with unusual camera angles and a cool electro vibe.

Kate Hudson makes a great comeback as a character actress in her role as a stripper.
