Members of an Anti-Crime Squad try to maintain order among local gangs in the impoverished Paris suburb of Montfermeil, but tensions rise when a young resident’s drone captures shocking footage. This arresting Oscar-nominated debut feature from director Ladj Ly, adapted from his 2017 short film of the same title, is a visceral and timely depiction of civil unrest.
