Centerpiece! New York Premiere!
Star Luminița Gheorghiu in person for Q&A!
This screening is currently standby only. A standby line will form at the box office one hour prior to showtime.
Winner of the Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale and a smashing box-office hit at home, Netzer's third film brilliantly deals with the mother of all moral dilemmas – faced by a parent willing to do everything in order to save her son, who killed a child in a car accident. The tight script makes things especially complicated, as the relation between mother and son is cruelly tormented. Playing the domineering yet strangely sympathetic mother—who might be the victim after all—Luminița Gheorghiu (the nurse with a heart of gold in The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu) is pitch perfect, walking on a tightrope. A Zeitgeist Films Release.
