CUSTODY - Monday 19thNovember 2018
Directed by Xavier Legrand
France - Subtitled
Miriam and Antoine have recently separated. While she is willing to permit their 17 year old daughter, Josephine, to decide living arrangements for herself, Miriam is desperate to keep her youngest, 11 year old Julian, away from his father. However the Magistrate rules in favour of joint custody and suddenly the boy is thrown directly into the middle of an escalating parental conflict where it seems inevitable that sides must be chosen.
In his directional debut, Xavier Legrand’s precise dissection of this family dynamic builds into a pulse-pounding thriller. Superbly observed and flawlessly acted, Custody has won many international film awards including the Silver Lion for Best Director and Best First Feature at the Venice Film Festival.
