Wondering why times are missing?

Dheepan, a former Tamil soldier, abandons his past and assumes a new identity as a refugee, a caretaker, a husband and a father.


From French director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) comes this heartbreakingly rough immigrant drama about a former Tamil soldier who hooks up with an orphaned child and a widowed woman in a Sri Lankan refugee camp. Using a dead family's visas, the trio travel to France and attempt to integrate into a new culture—but they remain foreigners to each other as well as their new home. And it isn't long before problems from the old country come calling. The film is dark, but Audiard focuses on the beautiful, tiny moments and details to present an uplifting tale of resilience. FULL REVIEW: French film unpacks the pain of immigrant life by Maggie Grimason (6/16/2016). 115 minutes R.
