Time & Tickets

Aimless young musician András drifts through a series of jobs – and women – in a Budapest that offers little possibility of la vie bohème. In a bar, he meets Kata and the two soon marry, despite their limited means and the fact that András already has a child from a previous relationship. They do not live happily ever after.

A finely wrought portrait of everyday despair, THE OUTSIDER pulls us deeply into the lives of ordinary people struggling to survive in a society that can find no place for them. (source: Lincoln Center)
