French Film Festival: “Bastards” (in French with English subtitles)

Claire Denis’s scalding examination of the abuse of power and the sin of looking the other way. Inspired by William Faulkner’s 1931 novel, Sanctuary, and the Sadean sex parties attended by Dominique Strauss-Kahn and other French higherups, “Bastards” centers on a revenge plot that begins tenuously but grows only more inexorable.

Free and open to the public.
