Alice Diop - 2023 - 122m - France - In French with English subtitles - No Matinees

Saint-Omer court of law. Young novelist Rama attends the trial of Laurence Coly, a young woman accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her to the rising tide on a beach in northern France. But as the trial continues, the words of the accused and witness testimonies will shake Rama's convictions and call into question our own judgement.

"Diop’s direction of Saint Omer is spare in style but dense in emotional intelligence, heavy with its own inquiries. The visual set-ups seem simple, but they are constantly carving away at the harrowing question of what people are thinking." - K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone

"Diop’s film revels in the enigmatic power of uncertainty." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

"Diop has turned a straightforward premise into the stuff of unassuming, unexpected and authentic poetry." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"A film of vast reach and great complexity." - Richard Brody, New Yorker
