THE REALM
EL REINO
2018, Latido, 132 min, Spain/France, Dir: Rodrigo Sorogoyen

On the heels of his Academy Award-nominated short film “Madre,” filmmaker Rodrigo Sorogoyen delivers an indictment of moral degradation in Spain’s halls of power. When the illicit dealings of a regional politician (Antonio de la Torre) fall under public scrutiny, the repercussions are far-reaching. His bid for higher office derailed, the antihero sets off down a collision course with his own party to protect himself at all costs. Winner of seven Goya Awards, including best director, best actor, and best original screenplay, EL REINO affords a gripping portrait of ambition and survival in a land beset by governmental intrigue.
