Goodnight Mommy

Screening: Saturday, May 2, 11:59pm


Directed by Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz

Starring: Susanne Wuest, Elias Schwarz, and Lukas Schwarz

Synopsis: In the heat of the summer. A lonesome house in the countryside between woods and corn fields. Nine-year-old twin brothers are waiting for their mother. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before. The children start to doubt that this woman is actually their mother. It emerges an existential struggle for identity and fundamental trust.

What the Critics Are Saying:

“The violence becomes almost unbearably brutal, and I can’t blame the multiple viewers who sprinted for the exit when their breaking points were reached. But fans of extreme cinema should consider this a must-see.”

-A.A. Dowd, The AV Club

“A must-see for fans of extreme cinema and those movie-lovers who get off on taut editing, delicately placed sound design and tightly wound storytelling-and a must-never-see for pretty much everybody else.”

-Ryan Lattanzio, Thompson on Hollywood
