The Accusation

US Premiere

Premiering at the Venice Film Festival, The Accusation is a breathtaking French drama centering on a controversial court case that features a mesmerizing performance from legendary actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. The Farels are a power couple: he is a famous television presenter, she a writer known for her feminist positions. When their apparently perfect son, who is studying at a prestigious American university, is accused of sexually assaulting a young woman from a Jewish family while on vacation in Paris, the family's life flies off the rails. Is he guilty or innocent? Is she the victim or is she out for revenge, as their accused son claims? And is there only one truth? In this film adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name, director Yvan Attal (MJFF 2017 film The Jews) delivers a timely and thought-provoking story exploring the intersection of class, sex, truth and consent, and brilliantly manages to include the point of view of each character, while leaving the dignity of all intact.
