SUNDAY’S ILLNESS
LA ENFERMEDAD DEL DOMINGO
2018, Netflix, 113 min, Spain, Dir: Ramón Salazar

Bárbara Lennie (EVERYBODY KNOWS, PETRA) and Susi Sánchez (THE SKIN I LIVE IN) star in this critically acclaimed drama as a mother and daughter who spend several days together in a remote country cabin, breaking a 30-year estrangement. The two women know nothing about each other beyond the obvious disparity in their lifestyles, and a history of betrayal makes an awkward 10 days even more painful - but the daughter’s reason for her return is perhaps not so malicious, and there may be a path to reconciliation after all. “It’s a powerful look at the durability of parent-child bonds as well as a fascinating psychological thriller about what it takes to heal such a rift when it seems irreparable.” - Eric Kohn, IndieWire.
