You can't get tired of watching her (Verdú), because of the many faces and tones she has as an actress.
Critically-acclaimed director Gracia Querejeta makes a smashing return to the Spanish Film Festival with this romping comedy-thriller starring the crème de la crème of Spanish acting royalty, including Maribel Verdú, Javier Cámara and Luis Tosar.
Leyre (Verdú) is a well-to-do woman who has always had an easy life of privilege. That is, until the day her teenage son kills her ex-husband in a senseless fit of rage. Completely out of her depth and desperate to protect her only son, Leyre tries a series of outlandish methods to conceal the crime from the police. Things really start to unravel when her sick mother and a lovesick friend of her son’s decide to lend their helping hand, unleashing a series of hysterical and catastrophic events.
Querejeta has delighted past Festival audiences with Happy 140 and 15 Years + 1 Day, and this year will be no exception, with Crime Wave showcasing her trade mark wicked and off-beat sense of humour at its very best.
Please note the film will screen with English subtitles during the festival.
