Following a successful bow at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard section, Claire Denis‘ new drama Bastards will finally hit U.S. shores shortly, as it’s set to show at New York Film Festival. We were major fans at its premiere saying in our full review that it’s “an effective thriller that lingers long after its final moments, and further striking evidence that Denis is one of the most fascinating artists this medium can call its own.”

Following a captain out at sea, Marco Silvestri (Vincent Lindon), he receives an urgent call from his sister, Sandra (Julie Bataille), one that beckons him to return to Paris immediately. Sandra’s husband had committed suicide while her daughter, Justine (Lola Créton), has been traumatized by a brutal rape. Determined to bring those responsible for such a heinous crime to justice, Marco embarks on an personal investigation to avenge his niece. We’ve now got five new clips from the film ahead of its NYFF showing, which can be seen below and if you missed it, one can listen to Tindersticks‘ full score here.

Bastards will likely see a U.S. release in 2014.
