Plot Summary

In 1894, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young promising officer, is degraded for spying for Germany, wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment at Devil's Island. Among the witnesses to his humiliation is Georges Picquart, who is promoted to run the military counter-intelligence unit that tracked him down. But when Picquart discovers that secrets are still being handed over to the Germans, he is drawn into a dangerous labyrinth of deceit and corruption that threatens not just his honor but his life.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In an interview with novelist Pascal Bruckner, conducted as part of the release promotion, Polanski suggested that he could relate easily to the Dreyfus affair through his personal experiences as a victim of a flawed justice system: "Most of the people who harass me do not know me and know nothing about the case. (...) I must admit that I am familiar with many of the workings of the apparatus of persecution shown in the film, and that has clearly inspired me." These comments were criticized in the media, but things got worse during the French release, when Polanski's comments pushed the former actress Valentine Monnier to publicly accuse the director of beating and raping her in 1975. This, combined with a new wave of #MeToo reckoning in French cinema, derailed the planned promotion, with Jean Dujardin having to cancel a primetime interview and Louis Garrel taping a talk show that ended up unaired. Polanski denied the new accusations. See more »
