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.
