The White Knights / Les chevaliers blancs (12)

whiteknightsIn an unnamed African country, the Move For Kids organisation (based on Zoe’s Ark) is officially established to rescue orphans and provide them with a new life in France. Led by Jacques (Vincent Lindon), it soon becomes apparent that the organisation’s motives behind saving the orphans are not always altruistic. With the line between humanitarian assistance and human trafficking becoming blurred, the stakes get higher. But who is right and who is wrong? Written by director Joachim Lafosse it boasts a standout performance by Louise Bourgoin.
