Child’s Pose stars Luminita Gheorghiu, Bogdan Dumitrache, Ilinca Goia, Natasa Raab, Florin Zamfirescu, and Vlad Ivanov.
A sharply crafted thriller, Child’s Pose thrives on a captivating performance by Gheorghiu as a steely, upper-class Bucharest architect determined to keep her 30-something deadbeat son out of jail after a deadly car crash. How far will she go to convince the police, eyewitnesses and even the victim’s family that her son was not recklessly speeding?
A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look into the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love.
The film has already received warm reviews after being released in Romania in March of 2013 and was Romania’s official submission to the Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film. Watch a trailer below and if you’re in New York be sure to see it in theaters on Feb. 19th!
