Plot / Synopsis
A man wrongly accused of an unspeakable crime battles to prove his innocence in this drama from director Vincent Garenq, based on a true story. Alain Marecaux (Philippe Torreton) and his wife Edith (Noemie Lvovsky) were a couple raising three children in a working-class community in Northern France when their lives were suddenly turned upside down. Police arrived at their home one night and arrested the couple, who were charged with being part of a group of sexual predators preying on children. However, Alain and Edith both insisted they were innocent and didn't even know the woman who has implicated them; it was the beginning of a legal nightmare that lasted two years and led to the arrest and conviction of a number of people. Presume Coupable (aka Guilty) was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
