GOODNIGHT MOMMY (UK PREMIERE)

TmnKTN3Director: Severin Fiala, Veronika Franz | Austria | 2014 | 1 hr 39 mins

In the confines of their ultra-modern rural home, twin brothers Lukas and Elias await the return of their mother, who has undergone cosmetic surgery. When she arrives, their mother’s face is covered with bandages and her behaviour seems erratic, leading the twins to suspect that the woman under the bandages is not their mother at all but an imposter. Disconnected from the outside world, Elias and Lukas decide to take matters into their own hands to find out the truth about the identity of the woman claiming to be their mother.

With a reputation that already precedes it (thanks in part to the feverish online reaction to its trailer) and the accolade of being Austria’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars in 2016, Goodnight Mommy is set to become one of the breakout genre films of the year, and chilling evidence of the old adage that children can be cruel…
