Child's Pose

Luminita Gheorghiu in 'Child's Pose'
The top prize winner at the Berlin Film Festival, Calin Peter Netzer’s sharply crafted "Child’s 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 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. Savagely witty and utterly engrossing, "Child’s Pose" is also the Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
