This film was released 25th March 2016, and is no longer screening.

Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a young soldier recently returned from combat in Afghanistan. Aimless and suffering from acute post-traumatic stress disorder, he takes a job as a security guard for a lavish party hosted at Maryland, a luxurious seaside villa, home to Jessie (Diane Kruger) and her husband, of whom the paranoid Vincent is instantly suspicious. When her husband travels to Geneva on business, Vincent is hired as security for Jessie and her young son, and it isn’t long before he must draw on his military training to keep them safe from harm.

Following her debut feature, the costume-drama Augustine (2012), Disorder represents a considerable change of pace for director Alice Winocour; sleek, lean and boasting a pulsing techno score, the film builds on its slow-burn first half with a satisfyingly bruising last act.
