This is an English and French language film and French dialogue will be subtitled.
Words are wielded like weapons and shocking truths come to light in this ferociously intelligent, Palme d’Or winning drama led by a complex and fascinating performance from Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann).
For the past year, Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German writer, her French husband Samuel (Samuel Theis), and their young son have lived a secluded life in the remote French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow below their chalet, the police treat it as murder, with Sandra the main suspect. With conflicting evidence and inconsistent testimony, her trial soon becomes not just a criminal investigation, but a gripping psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel's complicated marriage.
