Down By Love (Éperdument) by Pierre Godeau (France, 2016, 110 min.).
Adéle Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color) sizzles in this story of a young inmate who falls for her married prison director (Guillaume Gallienne, Yves Saint Laurent). The film is based on true events that occurred in a Versailles prison in 2011, causing a national scandal.
“This increasingly unsettling tale sets the bar as high as electrified prison walls … very fine work by its two leads.” — Screen Daily
