Cinemalliance | Jusqu'a la garde

TUESDAY 9 OCTOBER | Juqu'à la garde

Directed by Xavier Legrand with Léa Drucker, Denis Ménochet, Thomas Gioria
French-speaking film with English subtitles (English title: "Custody", 2017)

The Bessons are getting a divorce. To protect her son from a father whom she accuses of domestic violence, Miriam asks for sole custody. The judge nevertheless grants the father shared custody of their son. Held hostage between his parents, Julien will do everything to prevent the worst from happening.

With this intense and chilling first feature film, Xavier Legrand has been attracting a lot of praise and awards in international film festivals (TIFF 2017, Venice Film Festival 2017, Glasgow Film Festival 2018...).

Pssst, there might still be some authentic French pastries left from Cake Day for sale! ;)
