Garth Davis’ ‘Foe’ being trashed at the New York Film Festival

Foe, New Sci-Fi Film Receives Lackluster Reception at NYFF

At the recent New York Film Festival, the highly anticipated sci-fi film “Foe” by director Garth Davis was met with less than stellar reviews from press screenings. This has led many industry players to question whether this film should be considered as a potential contender in the awards season landscape.

Low Scoring Reviews

On popular movie rating platforms, “Foe” has received a disappointing score. Securing a mere 10% on Rotten Tomatoes and a lukewarm 49 on Metacritic, the film failed to impress critics and the public alike. The low ratings cast an unwelcoming shadow on the New York Film Festival’s decision to feature several world premieres.

Plot and Cast

Set in the year 2065, “Foe” stars acclaimed actors Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal, who portray a couple residing in a desolate desert. Their tranquil life is disrupted when a mysterious stranger, played by Aaron Pierre, shows up on their doorstep.
