Gilles Legrand's YOU WILL BE MY SON, is a taut psychological intergenerational drama about the troubled relationship between Paul de Marseul, the owner of a prestigious Bordeaux vineyard, played by great French actor Niels Arestrup (A Prophet, War Horse,) and his son. YOU WILL BE MY SON was shot on location in the region of Saint Emilion at the Chateau Clos Fourtet.
A demanding and passionate winemaker, Paul is also a domineering and manipulative father, not happy that his son, who works for him on the family estate, may one day succeed him. Paul dreams of a more talented and charismatic heir, more in line with his own fantasies.

Not before long, Paul starts seeing Philip as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.
