The remarkable Emmanuelle Devos and Daniel Auteuil - two of France’s finest and most-awarded actors – deliver astonishing performances in the gripping and provocative new drama from acclaimed writer/director Joachim Lafosse, of a married couple and their adopted son who grapple with the fallout when a long-held family secret is exposed.

Cocooned in a life of privilege, 50-something Astrid Schaar (Devos) is the wife of the suave François (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…

Sharply scripted and observed, and dominated by performances of complexity from Devos and Auteuil, 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.
