Child's Pose

Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  TBC
Cert:   Not Rated


Cornelia is 60 and fundamentally unhappy: her son, Barbu, 34, fights with all his might to become independent. He has moved out, has his own car, has a girlfriend who obviously doesnt meet Cornelias standards and – most upsettingly – he avoids his loving mother as much as possible. When Cornelia finds out that Barbu was involved in a tragic accident, her motherly instincts take over and she uses all her skills, well-connected friends and money to save Barbu from jail. Then she expects him to once again become the dependent child he was before. This doesnt seem to be a very difficult task, given the state of shock Barbu is in. But it is a thin line between motherly love and self-serving manipulation. Will she be able to let go and unlock him from his childs pose...? For more information, please contact
