Luce is the name of the son in the care of a married couple, who are forced to reckon with their idealised image of him, adopted from war-torn Eritrea, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher threatens his status as an all-star student.
Alas, despite all the plaudits, this looks dull as ditchwater.
Luce is released on August 2nd in the US, but if you want to see this in the UK, you’ll have to wait until November 8th.
