“A fascinating, troubling portrait of maternal anxiety at its most smotheringly neurotic.”
- Washington Post
“Searing… …an engrossing character study and a biting social statement that works on so many levels, it’s hard to separate them all.” – San Francisco Chronicle
Călin 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. The Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. Digital. 2013.
“Perversely engrossing thanks to Gheorghiu’s performance as the queen of denial.- Newsday
“A tour-de-force performance from Gheorghiu” – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
