A THIEF'S DAUGHTER
LA HIJA DE UN LADRÓN
2019, Latido Films, 102 min, Spain, Dir: Belén Funes

Sara (San Sebastián International Film Festival Best Actress Greta Fernández) has been alone all her life. She is 22 years old and has a baby; her wish is to have a normal family with her little brother and her baby’s father (Alex Monner). Her own father, Manuel (Eduard Fernández, Greta's real-life father), after years of absence because he was in jail, decides to reappear in their lives. Sara knows he is her main obstacle and takes a difficult decision: to move him away from her and her brother. "A naturalistic and empathetic evocation of life at the lower end of the social ladder, one which wears its near-inevitable Loach/Dardenne aspects with appealing freshness." - Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
