Miriam and Antoine are ending their marriage. Miriam claims that her former husband is abusive, and that her son doesn’t want to see him. Antoine dismisses these claims, as he appears calm and collected before the judge. Then it happens: the two are granted joint custody. What follows is a gripping and astoundingly intense dissection of domestic abuse — a window into a man with two faces, and those that have to endure both sides.
Winner of the prestigious Best Director award at the 2017 Venice Film Festival, first time feature director Xavier Legrand takes a bare-bones plot about something as seemingly simple as a family custody battle and turns it into riveting, edge-of-your-seat cinema that will have your heart beating out of your chest.
