After a bitter divorce, Miriam (Léa Drucker) and Antoine (Denis Ménochet) battle for sole custody of their son, Julien (Thomas Gioria). Miriam claims the father is violent but lacks proof. Antoine accuses her of manipulating their son for her own ends. Both sides seem to be hiding something with the truth buried beneath layers of deceit and jealousy. When the judge awards joint custody, an already tense situation soon brings the family's fraught past to light. And as the truth slowly begins to emerge, a chain of events is set in motion with Julian an innocent bystander in an increasingly dangerous situation. Award winning and critically acclaimed, Custody is a gripping, tension-filled debut from director Xavier Legrand. His mastery of building suspense, supported by exceptional performances from the cast, make this intensely powerful debut one of the must-see films of 2018.
