A Wing Auditorium, Room A011
When a Tamil Tiger attempts to flee Sri Lanka's Civil War, he finds that asylum status abroad is more quickly given to family units. Soon, two similarly desperate loners are posing as his wife and daughter. Settling in a Parisian housing project, this "family" begins adapting, both to each other and their surroundings, which grimly portend their own sectarian violence. Jacques Audiard continues his streak of confident, expressive cinema ("A Prophet," "Rust and Bone"), that has invited comparisons to Martin Scorsese. Winner of the Palme d'Or, The Playlist called this Audiard's "most compassionate and humanistic film to date."
