• Charlotte Gainsbourg and Romain Duris in “Persecution”

Daniel is crippled by his intensity of emotion. Sonia can’t bear to get too close. The couple, played by Romain Duris and Charlotte Gainsbourg in Patrice Chéreau’s Persécution, were made to tear each other apart.

Persécution screens Wednesday 10/21 in the Chicago International Film Festival‘s Best of the Fest night.
