The Indie Film “Child’s Pose” will be shown at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret St., on Monday, May 19 at 7 p.m. Directed by Calin Peter Netzer and starring Luminita Gheorghiu, this Romanian film with English subtitles was the top prize winner at the Berlin Film Festival. The sharply crafted “Child’s Pose” pivots on a riveting performance by Luminita Gheorghiu 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. Savagely witty and utterly engrossing, “Child’s Pose” is also the Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
