A cast featuring some of France’s biggest actors, including Charlotte Gainsbourg, headlines this intelligent and unsettling courtroom drama, as director Yvan Attal explores the thin line between morality and legality. Back in Paris on holiday from his American university, Alexandre attends a party with 17-year old Mila, the daughter of his mother’s new boyfriend. The next day, Mila files a rape claim against him, setting in motion a media-fuelled court case that proves ruinous to both families. Putting the viewer squarely in the juror box, Attal compels us to confront the ambiguous nature of truth.
