New Releases

When Sandra’s husband Samuel is found dead under mysterious circumstances in the snow below their secluded chalet, she becomes the main suspect. Not just an investigation into someone’s death, the trial soon becomes a gripping psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s complicated marriage. With conflicting evidence and inconsistent testimony, words are wielded like weapons and shocking truths come to light.

This acclaimed Palme d’Or winning film – only the second film by a French female director to be awarded the top prize at Cannes – is carried by the outstanding performance of its protagonists, in particular Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann) and Swann Arlaud.

Winner of the Oscar for Best original screenplay at the Academy Awards, the Golden Globe for Best Picture – Non-English Language and Best Screenplay, the BAFTA for Best original screenplay and the French César Award for Best film, Best director, Best original screenplay, Best editing, as well as the awards for Best actress to Sandra Hüller, and for Best supporting actor to Swann Arlaud.
