Party Day (Dia de Festa)

Sofia Bost -Portugal
2019 — Fiction — English subtitles — agencia@curtas.pt

In this slow burning pressure cooker of a heartbreaker, a mother does her upmost to make her young daughter’s birthday the best it can be. But the odds are stacked highly against her and her struggle sits imbedded in one’s memory a long time after the film has ended. The interplay between the two female leads makes this both a touching and poignant play on class mobility and opportunities in life.
