During the final days of communism in Romania, two college roommates, Otilia and Gabita, are busy preparing for a night away. But rather than planning for a holiday, they are making arrangements for Gabita’s illegal abortion and, unwittingly, both find themselves burrowing deep down a rabbit hole of unexpected revelations. Transpiring over the course of a single day, Cristian Mungiu’s film is a masterwork of modern filmmaking, by parts poignant and shocking. Nominated for four European Film Awards, including Best Picture and one of the standout hits of the Telluride, Toronto, and New York film festivals, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days is a modern classic that will stay with you long after you leave the cinema. Kenneth Turan of the L.A. Times wrote, “Beautifully realistic, faultlessly made. The film marks the emergence of Romanian cinema as a world force.” In Romanian with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including scenes depicting rape, violence, and strong language.
