About the Event

R. 2hr30min. 96% on RottenTomatoes.

For the past year, Sandra, her  husband Samuel, and their eleven-year-old son Daniel have lived a  secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found  dead in the snow below their chalet, the police question whether he was  murdered or committed suicide. Samuel's suspicious death is presumed  murder, and Sandra becomes the main suspect. What follows is not just an  investigation into the circumstances of Samuel's death but an  unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel's  conflicted relationship.

Peter Travers ABC News - "Prepare to  be wowed by one of the best movies of the year, starring a sensational  Sandra Hüller (heads up, Oscar) in Justine Triet’s forensic anatomy of a  marriage told through the compulsively watchable story of a wife on  trial for killing her husband."

David Fear Rolling Stone - "Though  some may come for the murder mystery, it’s Triet’s way of using that  genre to get at deeper notions of love turning to hate, and tiny marital  fissures that turn into chasms, that really makes this something close  to an anti-romantic masterpiece."

Bilge Ebiri New York Magazine - "It  has both suspense and intellectual ambition; plot revelations don’t just  send the story in new directions, they expand the film’s cultural  scope."

Lindsay Barr Associated Press - "It  seems that Anatomy of a Fall might be the new litmus test for modern  relationships. See it with a romantic partner at your own risk. But,  from my perch, this is one that’s worth the debate(s) it provokes.

Anthony Lane New Yorker - "You should  arrange to watch it at the cinema with your most captious  that you can thrash things out over dinner—fondue, I’d suggest, for that  handy whiff of bubbling Alpine chaos."
