Judge Michel Racine (Fabrice Luchini - Gemma Bovery) rules his courtroom with an iron fist. His minimum sentence always exceed ten years, and he’s as hard on himself as he is on others.
Overseeing a particularly brutal murder case and distracted by the flu, he sees juror Ditte Lorensen-Coteret (Sidse Babett Knudsen - TV’s Borgen). While maintaining order during the heartbreaking trial, he is tempted to resolve an intimate secret history they share; but must face breaking with protocol to do so. Confronting issues of class conflict, racial tensions and religious division, Courted delivers a brilliant dramatic turn from its cast.
