Synopsis

The top prize winner at the Berlin Film Festival, Călin Peter Netzerís sharply crafted Childís Pose pivots on a riveting performance by Luminita Gheorghiu (Best Supporting Actress, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Los Angeles Film Critics) as a steely, well-to-do 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 victimís 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. Savagely witty and utterly engrossing, Childís Pose is also the Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.

CHILD'S POSE is now available on DVD and Digital.
