Boston Premiere

Maria Linde, a Jewish-Polish Nobel Prize winner, lives a bohemian, free-spirited life in her Tuscan villa. A loving mother and grandmother, she also fosters a secret flirtation with a much younger Egyptian man. After a terrorist attack in Rome, Maria refuses to succumb to her neighbors’ hysterical fear and anti-immigrant sentiments, publicly decrying Europe’s eroding democracy instead. However, she is not prepared for the consequences her attitude and comments will have on her public and personal life.

“Satisfyingly complex… Another film or two this strong could make [director Jacek Borcuch] as significant an arthouse name as fellow countryman Pawel Pawlikowski.” —Variety

“Borcuch’s understated storytelling and the compelling central performance from Janda create a graceful film that is consistently engaging and often very moving.” —Screen International

Screened at Sundance 2019.
