Presumed Guilty

The most stunning and tentacular miscarriage of French justice in modern times – the 'Outreau affair' – is soberly and skillfully portrayed as the horror story it is in Presumed Guilty. Philippe Torreton's central performance (he's in nearly every frame) as Alain Marecaux, a respected legal professional, husband and father whose life is shattered overnight by flawed and flimsy accusations of child rape is a draining but riveting tour-de-force… Even the most casual student of how the French and Anglo-Saxon legal systems differ will be drawn into this unsettling entry in the 'wrong man' genre.
