Saint Omer

A novelist attends the trial of a woman accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her to the rising tide on a beach in northern France. But as the trial continues, her own family history, doubts, and fears about motherhood are steadily dislodged as the life story of the accused is gradually revealed in this gripping court drama.

Saint Omer opens at CCA on Feb 3. In the meantime, check out what’s now playing and what’s upcoming at your local, independent, nonprofit cinema.
