In writer-director Andrew Steggall's feature debut, Beatrice (Juliet Stevenson) and her teenage son Elliot (Alex Lawther) are preparing for the sale of their vacation home in the south of France. Elliot struggles with his dawning sexuality and an increasing alienation from his mother. Beatrice in turn is upset over the sale of the house and her crumbling marriage. When Clément (Phénix Brossard), an enigmatic local teenager, enters their lives, both mother and son are compelled to confront their desires and, finally, each other.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Departure is an intimate story beginning at dawn on the first day and ending at night on the sixth, charting the end of a summer, the end of a childhood and the end of an otherwise nuclear, middle class family.
  2. The film has won several awards at film festivals and earned critical acclaim. The Upcoming said "certain to become an LGBT classic, Departure is a true work of art and is not to be missed."
  3. Lead actor Alex Lawther is a star on the rise. He played the young Alan Turing in The Imitation Game and made a huge impact in the third season of the British anthology series "Black Mirror."
