Little Joe

‘An impressive futuristic in accordant with a sterile environment and an interesting theme.’ The science-fiction drama Little Joe was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and it even competed for the main prize. Emily Beecham, known from Ave, Caesar! by the Coen brothers, plays Alice Woodard, a scientist involved in the development of new plant species. One day she manages to grow a really special flower. Whoever smells it will be overwhelmed by this feeling of delightful euphoria. She proudly names this groundbreaking creation after her son – she calls it Little Joe. However, Alice, just like her relatives and lab colleagues, will soon realize that nothing is free, including happiness.
