French director Xavier Legrand was nominated for an Oscar for his short film in 2013, and Custody, his debut feature, has already won Best Film at 2018’s Audi Dublin International Film Festival.

A hit with critics, Custody demonstrates Legrand’s talent for building tension along with his ability to draw out stunning performances from his cast, most notably from young Julien, played by Thomas Gioria, who is the subject of this bitter custody battle.

Enjoy this dynamic and suspenseful family drama which deals with themes of domestic violence, toxic masculinity, and comes at a time in France when a woman dies every two and a half days at the hands of her live-in partner.
