Custody

Director: Xavier Legrand
Starring: Denis Ménochet, Thomas Gioria, Mathilde Auneveux, Léa Drucker
Duration: 94 min


After a bitter divorce, Miriam (Drucker) and Antoine (Ménochet) battle for sole custody of their son, Julien (Gioria). Miriam claims the father is violent but lacks proof. Antoine accuses her of manipulating their son for her own ends. Both sides seem to be hiding something; the truth is buried in deceit and jealousy. When the judge awards joint custody, Julien becomes a pawn in a tense conflict that soon brings the family’s fraught past to light.

Winner of prestigious awards at the 2017 Venice Film Festival, including the Silver Lion for best director, Custody is a gripping, tension-filled drama that heralds a stunning new cinematic voice in Xavier Legrand. Legrand’s mastery of building suspense, supported by exceptional performances from Denis Ménochet, Léa Drucker and Thomas Gioria, marks this out as one of the must-see films of 2018.
