“Stars at Noon” – A Labyrinth of Lies and Conspiracies

Romantic thriller Stars at Noon, based on Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel of the same name, stars Golden Globe nominee Margaret Qualley (Maid) as Trish, a headstrong journalist who has an affair in Nicaragua with a mysterious, soft-spoken English businessman, Daniel, played by Joe Alwyn (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk). While the book is set in the 80s, legendary director Claire Denis (High Life, Both Sides of the Blade) has updated the backdrop from that of the Nicaraguan revolution to the present day COVID pandemic era.
