Kristin Scott Thomas returned to cinemas earlier this year in Lola Doillon’s In Your Hands (2011), a taught chamber piece set in the Parisian suburbs. An intense, claustrophobic thriller, Doillon’s film is an astute and complex examination of the fluid, mutually treacherous relationship between victim and aggressor, captive and jailer. To celebrate its home entertainment release, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to our loyal readers, courtesy of UK world cinema distributors Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
A woman cautiously emerges from a house in the Paris suburbs, then returns to her home and work, telling everyone she knows that she has been on holiday and that everything is normal. Surgeon Anna (Scott Thomas) clearly has a secret that she doesn’t intend to reveal – but this taut thriller by Doillon keeps the narrative on a slow-burning fuse until Anna walks into a police station and explains what’s really been happening to her. Essentially a two-hander for most of its duration, Doillon’s film pits Anna against a man (Pio Marmaï) with a long-standing grudge against her.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Blu-ray copies of Lola Doillon’s In Your Hands, just answer the following simple question:
Kristin Scott Thomas starred opposite US actor Ethan Hawke in another Parisian thriller earlier this year – what was it called?
