Maureen Kearney, a committed union representative, bravely risks everything to unveil secret agreements between French nuclear energy companies and Chinese finance. However, her world is shattered when she becomes the victim of a brutal assault in her own home. As the authorities delve into the case, the tables turn against her, casting doubt on her innocence. Set in a world of whistleblowing, corporate skulduggery and misogyny this nail-biting, cat-and-mouse thriller is based on a shocking true story.
‘[Huppert] is a genuinely singular talent in modern European cinema, and her ability to take a role like this and infuse it with stillness and subterranean complexities is nothing less than mesmerising.’
Kevin Maher, The Times
‘At no point is a link made between this narrative and The Scarlet Letter, but both the book and the film induce shivers by exposing the gross misogyny of so-called respectable establishment figures.’
Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
