Forming a family of convenience to escape the bloody endgame of the Sri Lankan civil war, a Tamil man, woman and girl are housed in a troubled Parisian suburb.
While this new ‘family’ haltingly bond and settle down, Dheepan cannot wholly forget his wartime trauma nor ignore the criminality threatening his new community.
Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet) was awarded the Palme d’Or at Cannes for audaciously combining an undeniably touching, absorbing family drama with an explosive final act that has divided reviewers and the David Lean committee alike!
