The Unknown Girl


Superb … A deft, meticulous moral drama that has plenty on its mind while telling a taut, stripped-down story.” –Paste

The searing saga of guilt and redemption from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT) begins as a young doctor (Cesar-winning actress Adèle Haenel) allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover the identity of the woman. Shot through with the directors’ low-key suspense and heart-stopping realism, this a both gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale. (Belgium, 2017, 113m, IFC Films)
