The Sitting Duck (M)

The Sitting Duck movie poster

The true story of Maureen Kearney, the head union representative of a French multinational nuclear powerhouse. She became a whistleblower, denouncing top-secret deals that shook the French nuclear sector. Alone against the world, she fought government ministers and industry leaders, tooth and nail to bring the scandal to light and to defend more than 50,000 jobs... Her life was turned upside down when she was violently assaulted in her own home... The investigation is carried out under pressure: the subject is sensitive. Suddenly, new elements create doubt in the minds of the investigators. At first a victim, Maureen becomes a suspect.

Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Yvan Attal, Marina Foïs, Grégory Gadebois, François-Xavier Demaison, Pierre Deladonchamps, Alexandra Maria Lara

Director: Jean-Paul Salomé

★★★★ "Huppert is magnificent in this enraging true story" EVENING STANDARD

★★★★ "[Huppert] is a genuinely singular talent in modern European cinema, and her ability to take a role like this and infuse it with stillness and subterranean complexities is nothing less than mesmerising." TIMES UK

"Sitting Duck plays no games with the audience. What power it has derives from the knowledge that this shocking story actually happened." SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
