Two sisters, one politically active and the other not, find themselves caught up in politics in the dark days following the Spanish Civil War… Vivid performances by attractive leads Maria Leon, who won Best Actress kudos at the San Sebastian festival, and the fiery Inma Cuesta.” - Hollywood Reporter. “A harrowing drama that transforms the sorry plight of female prisoners in post-Civil War Spain into a bleak examination of man's inhumanity to women, THE SLEEPING VOICE magnificently tells a tale that needs to be told and retold. Shrewdly remaining mainstream while plumbing the depths of grief and violence… foreign audiences will be gripped.” –Variety. Winner of three Goya Awards (including Best New Actress for Maria Leon), and nominated for an additional six (including Best Director and Best Film). In Spanish with English subtitles.
