Original Title:

Grand Central

Nuclear plant novice Tahar Rahim somewhat inevitably succumbs to passion and radiation in this simmering if melodramatic ménage. Nevertheless, the romance with Léa Seydoux crackles, while the support playing is impeccable and the sense of peril chilling.

A gripping if occasionally overwrought drama radiated by a standout turn from Seydoux.
