          The astonishing, break-out critical discovery of the Venice Film Festival, where it was awarded Best Director and Best Debut Film, Xavier Legrands heart-stopping French drama CUSTODY charts a familys struggles with the fallout of divorce, and the resulting impact on the two child...ren. Miriam (La Drucker, The Blue Room) and Antoine (Denis Mnochet, The Returned) have recently separated. While shes willing to permit their 17-year-old daughter Josephine (Mathilde Auneveux) to decide living arrangements for herself, Miriam is desperate to keep her youngest, 11-year-old Julien (Thomas Gioria), away from his father. But the magistrate rules in favour of joint-custody, and suddenly the boy is thrown directly into the middle of an escalating parental conflict, where it seems inevitable that sides must be chosen. Superbly observed and flawlessly acted (the heartrending performances of the two children are more than worth the price of admission), Legrands precise dissection of this family dynamic masterfully builds into a pulse-pounding thriller. Honest, yet still evoking profound sympathy for all its protagonists, CUSTODY is sure to be remembered as one of the most important and vital films of 2018.

          The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieus charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family,... both lost and found. When lonely 45-year-old widower Erwan (the remarkable Franois Damiens, The Blier Family) discovers by accident that that man who raised him isnt his real father, he begins a search for his biological one. Thanks to a local private detective he soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (Le Havres Andre Wilms), whom it seems his mother may have known briefly. Erwan soon falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (a radiant Ccile de France), who has ties to them both. But the conflicting loyalties become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter (Alice de Lencquesaing), who defiantly refuses to name the father very soon Erwans families begin to collide, to unexpected, hilarious and moving effect. Offering a terrific showcase for her brilliant cast, director Carine Tardieu skillfully weaves a wholly-entertaining exploration of love, coincidence and human connection. Few films manage to pluck both the heartstrings and the funny bone as well as JUST TO BE SURE. Its a delight.

Tony closes the door in his face, so Yasser replaces the pipe anyway, only for Tony to smash it to pieces. Passions boil over, each man digs in, and what should have been a trivial incident easily shrugged off escalates quickly into a dispute that reverberates through their families and communities. Eventually lawyers are called in and the men find themselves in the centre of a highly publicised trial one that reopens historical and personal wounds on both sides.

EDEN is a spectacular panorama of beautiful faces and bodies, light, colour and music, pulsating with the reckless heartbeat of youth.
