Christopher Kelly Modern Cinema - Monthly Series

Child's Pose
  • January 9, 2014 - 7:00pm

How far will a mother go to protect her child? In this riveting psychological thriller, Luminiţa Gheorghiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days) plays a wealthy woman in Bucharest determined at all costs to keep her son out of jail after he’s accused of manslaughter. With brilliant performances and shocking blasts of dark humor, Child’s Pose – which won the top prize at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, and is now considered one of the strongest contenders for this year’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar – is a portrait of matriarchal mania every bit as memorable as Mommie Dearest or Gypsy. Directed by Calin Peter Netzer. In Romanian with English subtitles. 112 min.
