Custody

Synopsis

In this stunning debut feature, which took home the Best Director Award at Venice, young Julien has become an unwilling and unhappy pawn in his parents’ acrimonious separation. Even after the divorce, father Antoine continues to fight for more access to his son, despite mother Myriam’s insistence that he has been an abusive father and husband. The judge’s ruling in favor of joint custody sets into motion a terrifying chain of events in the tense, heart-wrenching family drama.
