Child’s Pose

(Poziția copilului)

featuring

Luminiţa Gheorghiu, Bogdan Dumitrache, Ilinca Goia, Nataşa Raab,

The grand prize winner at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, this social thriller follows an upper-class Bucharest architect who’ll stop at nothing to keep her grown son out of jail—even after he killed a child in a car accident. A withering takedown of the mores (or lack thereof) of the one percent in general and the corruption of nouveau riche, well-connected Romanians in particular, Child’s Pose is both “a story as cold, merciless, and inevitable as a tomb” (Manohla Dargis, New York Times) and “a ferocious psychological drama with the pace of a thriller” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
