Tár, a 2023 Oscar-nominee for Best Picture, stars Cate Blanchett (herself nominated for Best Actress, Leading) as classical musician Lydia Tár. Everything seems to be going right, as the lauded conductor is set to debut a book about herself titled Tár on Tár and debut a much-hyped live performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony.
Except that behind closed doors, some are itching to betray Tár, and already cattily mock her without her knowledge. And in the classroom, Tár gets into animated and biting debates with students. But once a whisper campaign turns into a series of shouts and accusations, the entire empire that Lydia Tár has carefully composed is threatened to collapse.
Blanchett is a front-runner in the Oscar race this year, and Tár is also nominated for Academy Awards in the categories of cinematography, directing, film editing and original screenplay.
As noted above, Tár is now on the Peacock streaming service, having released today (Friday, Jan. 27).
In terms of other Oscar nominees to stream, you can watch The Banshees of Inisherin or watch Top Gun: Maverick without renting either. You'll make use of a digital rental or purchase to watch Everything Everywhere All at Once at home.
