Director Xavier Legrand and actor Denis Ménochet will attend the screening on Tue 27 Feb.


Xavier Legrand won the Venice Film Festival Best Director prize for this, his debut feature: a tense, gripping depiction of the fallout from a bitter custody battle. Miriam (Léa Drucker) has left her husband Antoine (Denis Ménochet) and is now seeking sole custody of their son Julien (Thomas Gioria). Both sides seem to be hiding something, and with accusations of violence, the judge must decide whether or not to give a seemingly repentant Antoine the benefit of the doubt. Her decision marks the beginning of a brilliantly acted, tautly handled drama in which Legrand calmly escalates the tension towards breaking point.
