Winner of Best Actor (Konstantin Lavronenko) and nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2007. Loosely based on a short story by American novelist William Saroyan, ‘The Banishment’ is a powerful and atmospheric portrait of an unravelling marriage. Having left the city, Alex and Vera set up home with their children in a remote but idyllic-seeming country house. But then one day Vera makes a shocking confession, setting in motion a chain of events that will lead to tragedy. Acclaimed director Andrey Zvyaginstev ('The Return', 'Leviathan', 'Loveless') confirms his position as an absolute master of style and mood with his award-winning and stunningly photographed story of masculine pride, morality and betrayal. ★★★★ "A powerfully atmospheric piece of cinema" - Derek Malcolm, Evening Standard
