Custody.jpg

Xavier Legrand's Custody is a devastating low key, high impact study of domestic abuse which garnered rave reviews upon its release. When his parents separate, a bitter custody battle results in 11-year-old Julien being shuttled between his fearful mother and abusive father, who uses the boy as a pawn to manipulate his ex-wife.

Deftly pivoting from tense realism to outright horror, Xavier Legrand’s broken-family chamber drama deservedly won the first-time feature director the Venice Film Festival’s Best Director award
