Miriam (Léa Drucker) and Antoine Besson (Denis Ménochet) have divorced, and Miriam is seeking sole custody of their son Julien (Thomas Gioria) to protect him from a father she claims is violent.

A hostage to the escalating conflict between his parents, Julien is pushed to the edge to prevent the worst from happening.

"The intensity is too much to bear in the best possible way. Legrand knows exactly where to position his characters and what’s necessary to break them. It’s a steady crescendo of suspense despite his source of danger never shifting. "
Jared Mobarak - THE FILM STAGE

"As a demonstration of slighted masculinity being given an inch, taking a mile, and chewing it up with breakneck fury, the film could hardly be more timely or disconcerting. But it understands the ignition point of rage – not just its ugly momentum."
Tim Robey - THE TELEGRAPH

"An almost unbearably-tense, no-holds-barred drive through the nightmare of domestic terrorism, Custody is a can’t-look-away hybrid of gruelling reality and heightened cinematic technique. The mix is jarring, as intended, and this wrenching, heart-stopping film illustrates domestic violence and obsession in a way that makes the fear real."
Fionnuala Halligan - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
