Directed by Xavier Legrand
A broken marriage leads to a bitter custody battle with an embattled son at the center in this tense family drama that will keep audiences guessing and leave them with their hearts in their throats.
"We will be seeing much more of this filmmaker in the years to come. Legrand operates in the raw social realist tradition of such auteurs as Maurice Pialat and the Dardenne brothers, stripping away sentimentality in favor of direct, observational filmmaking."
“An almost unbearably-tense, no-holds-barred drive... Custody is a can’t-look-away hybrid of gruelling reality and heightened cinematic technique."
“Razor-sharp. An impressive feature debut.”
"Truly merit[s] the term 'discovery.' An extremely auspicious debut for a writer-director with the rare, almost classicist ability to make utterly riveting drama out of painfully real life."
