Ballarat Film Society – The Good Boss (El buen patron)
November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Spain, 2021, 120 min. Directed and written by Fernando León de Aranoa
Blanco (Javier Bardem), the charismatic owner of a family-run factory, is under pressure as he covets a local award for business excellence. Everything needs to be perfect! But the veneer of his perfect company cracks as Blanco has to deal with a vengeful fired worker, a depressed supervisor, and an infatuated ambitious intern. To win the competition, the manipulative “good boss” shamelessly meddles in his employees’ private lives and crosses every line imaginable, unknowingly starting an explosive chain reaction with wild consequences. “Hilarious and accomplished dark comedy about the indignities of working life. A tour de force satire” – CineEuropa.
