Matthew Broderick and Géza Röhrig in “To Dust” (Promotional image)
Boston premiere. Shmuel (Geza Rohrig, “Son of Saul,” BJFF 2015), a Hasidic cantor in upstate New York, is struggling to make peace with the loss of his wife. After a series of disturbing dreams, he grows obsessed with how her body will decay and decides he must understand the decomposition process. He calls upon Albert (Matthew Broderick), a community college biology professor, to help him, and the two embark on a darkly comic, macabre misadventure. As their unlikely friendship grows ever more peculiar, this “odd couple” will stop at nothing to satiate their curiosity and, ultimately, to find Shmuel the peace he seeks.
