In DOWN BY LOVE, life is turned upside down for newly incarcerated Anna (Adéle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Colorwhen she meets Jean (Guillame Gallienne, Yves Saint Laurent), the warden of her detention center. As the pair quickly become immersed in a whirlwind romance, their high stakes relationship leads to grave consequences. Based on a stunning true story, this steamy prison romance explores the power of right, wrong and impossible love.

“This increasingly unsettling tale sets the bar as high as electrified prison walls… very fine work by its two leads.” —Screen Daily

Down by Love is infuriating, erotic and a perfect showcase for both top-notch performances and skilled, measuring filmmaking.” —Third Coast Review
