The Goldman Case

Thu 16 Nov
Festivals & Series

A tense, edge-of-the-seat courtroom drama powerfully recreating the trial of Pierre Goldman in 1976 France, which was widely acknowledged as the most divisive case since the Dreyfus Affair of 1894. Prosecuted for a triple murder during the armed robbery of a Parisien pharmacy, Goldman, the rebellious son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, whose father was also a decorated Resistance fighter, refused to call any witnesses to his character. Politically on the far left and defiantly Jewish in his identity, Goldman accused the police of institutional antisemitism and racism, and of conspiring to convict him of a crime of which he was innocent. Selected to open the Critics Week at the Cannes Film Festival 2023, The Goldman Case features an outstanding performance from Arieh Worthalter in the lead.
