This mesmerizing courtroom drama about a German woman (Sandra Hüller) accused of murdering her French husband at their isolated chalet won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and will certainly be in the conversation for several Oscar nominations. Half in French and half in English, it’s a twisty and mind-bendy drama that will have you guessing right up until the end… and then even after. Hüller anchors the film with an honest and gripping portrayal of a woman falsely accused (or is she?) in this masterful mystery from director and co-writer Justine Triet (‘In Bed with Victoria’).

5/5 stars
