La Promesse

New Yorker; rental pricing
Feature; NR
Directors:Jean Pierre and Luc Dardenne
Cast:Jérémie Renier and Olivier Gourmet

The Belgian brothers Dardenne mine their documentarian past to unfold this viscerally real story about a teen faced with a brutal dilemma: Can he accept his father who smuggles in immigrants and pays them slave wages and also keep a promise made to one of these men? Honest and rife with tension, this deceptively simple film stands out as a gripping portrayal of a fractured conscience.
