Jusqu'à La Garde (Custody)
A devastatingly powerful, emotionally-charged firecracker of a film, from hotly-tipped new French director Xavier Legrand, ‘Custody’ bristles with tension and dramatic energy from the start. Through the eyes of young Julien Besson (Thomas Gioria), we watch the harrowing breakdown of his parents’ marriage. Yet, amidst the turmoil, our suppositions and assumptions are constantly challenged, in a storyline that twists and turns back and forth. Is Antoine, Julien’s dad, a violent, unpredictable monster? Is his mother Miriam manipulative, dishonest and controlling? It would be spoiling the eventual climax to tell you more, so we will just sincerely urge you not to miss this one.
