Synopsis

Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert (The Godmother, AF FFF22) is nothing short of electrifying in the role of real-life whistle-blower Maureen Kearney, a trade unionist who dared to challenge the powerful nuclear industry at an immense personal cost.

Feared, admired and loathed for her considerable influence, Kearney's world takes a harrowing turn when she exposes the unsettling details of a clandestine deal between French and Chinese power companies. This revelation leads to a brutal assault that sets off a chain of events exposing the failures of the justice system and the pervasive corruption within government and corporate realms.

Since its debut at the Venice Film Festival, this rage-inducing political thriller crafted by writer/director Jean-Paul Salomé, has gripped audiences with an unrelenting tension, unveiling the shocking truths of Kearney's plight. The Sitting Duck is intensely compelling in the way it immerses audiences in the high-stakes world of political intrigue and personal peril.
Brace yourself for a fascinating and revealing real-life tale of courage and resilience that demands to be seen!
