  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Custody

    (Cannes 2017) Rarely has a film affected me so physically that I could barely breathe, and never before have I seen a film where - on more than one occasion - I instinctively reached out to the screen in an effort to save the characters. An unflinching look at domestic violence: psychological violence (games), emotional violence (passive aggression), as well as physical, with standout performances all round.
