Win Dheepan on DVD

dheepan dvd

To celebrate the Home Entertainment release of Jacques Audiard’s Palme d’Or-winning drama Dheepan, we have two DVD copies of the film to give away.

From Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain; the director and screenwriter team behind outstanding BAFTA winners Un Prophet and Rust & Bone, DHEEPAN is a topical, brutal and powerful portrayal of three Tamil immigrants who illegally enter France in hope of leading a better life.

To escape the civil war in Sri Lanka, a former Tamil Tiger (Antonythasan Jesuthasan), a young woman (Kalieaswari Srinivasan) and a little girl (Claudine Vinasithamby) pose as a family. They end up settling in a housing project outside Paris. They barely know one another, but try to build a life together. However, hurdles await them in the Paris suburbs, not least deciding what kind of relationship they want to have. This dilemma is intensified by the hard-knock struggle of holding down grueling jobs on the dilapidated estate they call home, maintaining a stable domestic life, and looking after a ‘daughter’ (Claudine Vinasithamby) who belongs to neither of them. The trio’s predicament reaches boiling point when they trigger the unwelcome attention of the estate’s gang members, bringing their previously low-key existences to an abrupt end.

Dheepan is available to own on Digital Download from 1st August and on DVD and Blu-ray on 8th August 2016.
