From one of France’s brightest new writer-directors, Rebecca Zlotowski (Belle épine, You and the Night), Grand Central is a passionate story about lust and forbidden love starring Tahar Rahim and Léa Seydoux.
Gary (Tahar Rahim) is young, agile and a quick learner. He's one of those guys who's never been promised anything. After a succession of odd jobs, he’s taken on at a nuclear power plant. There, amongst the reactors and their high doses of radioactivity, he finally finds what he's been looking for: money, a team, a family. But the team also includes Karole (Léa Seydoux), the wife of his colleague, Toni (Denis Menochet), with whom he falls in love.
Grand Central stars two of France’s most exciting and talented actors – Léa Seydoux, winner of the Palme d’Or in 2013 for her stunning performance in Blue Is The Warmest Colour, and Tahar Rahim who received many accolades for his gripping performance in A Prophet, including two César Awards and Best Actor from the European Film Awards. Providing solid support is Dardenne favourite Olivier Gourmet.
A leading light of France’s young generation of auteurs, writer-director Rebecca Zlotowski was awarded the François Chalais Prize for Grand Central at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The film went on to play at the London Film Festival in 2013 gathering strong critical acclaim for its theatrical release.
Grand Central will be released on UK DVD and Download on 10th November 2014 by Studiocanal at the RRP of £17.99.
