WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Alexia (Rousselle) is a showgirl who, since a childhood car accident, has a titanium plate inside her head. When an unusual turn of events leaves her in an unexpected state, and her darker habits force her to go on the run, she disguises herself as the missing son of firefighter Vincent (Lindon)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

One of the year’s most talked-about movies, and the winner of this year’s Palme D’Or at Cannes – making filmmaker Julia Ducournau only the second female director to win – Titane is an absolutely mad experience that needs to be seen to be believed.
