On April 24, our regular screening program 'Subtitled Tuesday' (with English subtitles included) will present the French film 'Custody' ('Jusqu'à la Garde', 2017) directed by Xavier Legrand. Screening starts at 6:30 p. m.
Suspenseful drama about custody battle awarded with the Silver Lion for Best Direction in Venice. Miriam and Antoine Besson are freshly divorced. Miriam seeks sole custody over their son Julien to protect him from his allegedly violent father. Yet the image Antoine projects in court is of a calm, changed man, and he gets shared custody. The traumatized Julien becomes a hostage in the battle between his mother trying to escape her ex-husband and his father manipulating him to sneak back into his ex-wife’s life. The film stars Denis Ménochet ('Inglorious Bastards' and 'Grand Central'), Léa Drucker and Thomas Gioria.
