UK Premiere: L’adopció

Directed by Daniela Fejerman

When a Spanish couple travel to a country in Eastern Europe to adopt a young child, they find themselves mired in an murky system that seems to prey on their vulnerability. As the atmosphere becomes increasingly tense, their own latent conflicts come to the fore as the dream threatens to turn into a nightmare. Inspired by the writer-director’s personal experiences, this poignant film offers some surprising wry comic moments, and deals with an emotional topic without sentimentality. Acclaimed Catalan actors Navas and Garrido give great performances as the hopeful but increasingly paranoid couple.
