LIVE Q&A - Stéphane Demoustier: Thursday 2 July, 8.30pm on live.curzonhomecinema.com
When Sixteen-year-old Lise is accused of murdering her best friend, the impending case tests the loyalty of her family and those around her. However, once the trial starts, her secret life begins to unfold and the plot thickens, calling into question how well we really know the ones we love. What follows is a gripping courtroom procedural that forensically probes the anatomy of a trial, posing questions about how society judges young women inside and outside the courtroom.
Featuring a mysterious and enigmatic breakthrough central performance from newcomer Melissa Guers, writer-director Stephane Demoustier’s 'The Girl With A Bracelet' is a powerful drama that matches the complexities of a coming-of-age story with a thoughtful inversion of the typical whodunnit.
★★★★ "Talented newcomer Melissa Guers is as inscrutable as Greta Garbo in this quietly intense French thriller" - Charlotte O'Sullivan, Evening Standard
★★★★ "Gripping... the young actor (Geurs) is the film’s standout" - Christopher Machell, Cinevue
