Winner of the César (French Oscar) for best film of 2018 and Best Director at the Venice Film Festival, Custody tackles the difficult yet familiar subject of domestic terrorism and the trauma of family breakup. Director Xavier Legrand creates gruelling reality and a relentlessly growing sense of doom, leading to a searing conclusion. Flawlessly and realistically acted by the three central performers, particularly the ten-year old boy at the centre of the custody battle, this is a tense and gripping film experience that illustrates domestic violence and obsession in a way that makes the fear real.
