During the final days of communism in
Romania, two college roommates Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) and
Gabita (Laura Vasiliu) are busy preparing for a night away.
But rather than planning for a holiday, they are making
arrangements for Gabita's illegal abortion and unwittingly,
both find themselves burrowing deep down a rabbit hole of
unexpected revelations. Transpiring over the course of a
single day, Mungiu's film is a masterwork of modern
filmmaking, by parts poignant and shocking. Nominated for 4
European Film Awards including Best Picture and one of the
standout hits of the Telluride, Toronto and New York Film
Festivals, 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS is a modern classic
that will stay with you long after you've left the theater.
