Silence, A

Joachim Lafosse (After Love) directs a confronting, award-winning domestic drama.

Cocooned in a life of privilege, 50-something Astrid Schaar (Emmanuelle Devos) is the wife of the suave François (Daniel Auteuil), a prominent and media-savvy lawyer approaching a crucial point in his years-long, high-profile case, in which he represents the parents of a number of abducted children. Day and night, reporters wait outside their gated home, hoping to snap a photo and secure François’ latest remarks. But the uneasy equilibrium of the household erodes when a figure from the family’s past returns, initiating their own search for justice…

A SILENCE - inspired by true events that shocked France and Belgium - is a disquieting exploration of family duty, complicity, and coercive control; as the screws tighten and the characters steel themselves for the repercussions of their actions, it’s impossible to look away.
