Synopsis:
Dheepan is a Sri Lankan Tamil Tiger, forced to flee to France to escape civil war by posing as a family with a woman and young girl he has never previously met. Finding work as a caretaker of a housing block in the Parisian suburbs, Dheepan works to build a new life and home for his 'wife' and 'daughter', but the daily violence he confronts quickly reopens the violence from his past, and he is left fighting for their livelihood, and eventually their lives. From acclaimed director Jacques Audiard, and winner of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or, 'Dheepan' is a powerful tale of family, love, social integration, and the overwhelming effects of warfare.

Gripping and beautifully acted - Dheepan review by RB

We have enjoyed films directed by Jacques Audiard before and this lived up to the reviews and his reputation. The story of a Tamil Tiger, Dheepan, washing up in a lawless estate in France with a ready made family was beautifully realised. The acting was superb and had a naturalistic feel.

Moving insight into the lives of others - Dheepan review by PB

Fabulous story, beautifully filmed and acted. Emotionally moving script that felt authentic. The move of refugees from the frying pan into the fire. Brilliant.
