In Your Hands

17 Jul 20124 stars

Kristin Scott Thomas and Pio Marmaï star in this claustrophobic French drama

Virtually a two-hander, and physically confined enough that it might have been written for the stage, this film is a risky proposition even before the plot asks you to believe that a woman might find more than just sympathy for her violent kidnapper.
