The Five Devils

The Five Devils

Eight-year-old Vicky possesses an extraordinary gift: an inhuman sense of smell that’s developed into an obsession with capturing the very essence of important moments in her life. Bullied at school and socially isolated, she spends most of her time with her mother, Joanne (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue Is the Warmest Colour), a dejected swim instructor whose marriage is faltering. However, when Vicky's estranged aunt Julia is released from prison, long-repressed family secrets begin to resurface. 

An enchanting tale of witchcraft, queer romance, and time travel, The Five Devils defies genre conventions and offers a powerful meditation on unsaid secrets, the loss of youth and the choices that define our lives and those in it.
