Written by Antoine Raimbault and Isabelle Lazard, from an original idea by the director and Karim Dridi, the story revolves around Nora (Marina Foïs). Ever since she served on the jury during his trial, she has been convinced that Jacques Viguier (Laurent Lucas) is innocent, despite him being accused of murdering his wife. Following an appeal by the public prosecutor’s office, and fearing a miscarriage of justice, she convinces a leading lawyer (Olivier Gourmet) to defend him during his second trial, on appeal. Together, they will put up a tenacious fight against injustice. As the noose tightens around the neck of the accused, Nora’s quest for the truth becomes a dangerous obsession… 

Produced by Caroline Adrian for Delante ProductionsIntime Conviction is being co-produced by Belgium’s Umedia, and is benefiting from pre-purchases by Canal+ and Ciné+, an advance on receipts from the CNC, backing from the Ile-de-France and Occitanie regions, and support from the La banque Postale Image, Cinéventure and Indéfilms Soficas. The shoot will take place in the environs of Toulouse, and subsequently in Ile-de-France, until 20 December. Memento Films Distribution will handle the French release, while the international sales will be entrusted to Charades.
