The cryptic drama from Peruvian director Claudia Llosa (“The Milk of Sorrow,” “Loxoro”) — which also marks her first English language drama — stars Cillian Murphy as a falcon handler who travels to the Arctic Circle with a journalist (Mélanie Laurent) to find and learn more about his faith healer mother (Connelly). The film is split into two halves — the first dealing with the mother and her young children — and the clip above features Connelly’s character in a conflicted state over her decisions and her belief in her faith-healing mentor.
“Aloft” premiered at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival and was released in select theaters this past spring. The drama is now available On Demand.
