Description

Three strangers are thrown together in a desperate attempt to flee their war torn homeland. The Sri Lankan civil war has ended and a former Tamil Tiger soldier (who now assumes the name Dheepan), a young single woman, and an orphaned girl masquerade as a family to better their chances of immigrating to safety. But other unfamiliar dangers lay ahead in the volatile atmosphere of a shabby Parisian suburb. As the three struggle to maintain the intimate façade of a family, Dheepan finds it hard to avoid the violence of the streets. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Jacques Audiard's (A Prophet) latest is a gripping, human, and timely tale of survival.
