The Good Boss (15)

Javier Bardem excels as a corporate boss who'll tell you he’s your best friend just as he’s stabbing you in the back, in this ruthlessly funny corporate satire.

Blanco (Javier Bardem) initially appears to be a kindly, if bland, owner of a factory. 'Don’t treat me like a boss', he gestures to his employees. But behind the genial façade lies a selfish profiteer. Blanco is all smiles for a visiting journalist and is intent on keeping morale up so he can win a government award. But when he makes a long-serving employee redundant and takes advantage of his latest intern, cracks start to appear in the industrialist's world.  

Director Fernando León de Aranoa previously worked with Bardem on the Escobar biopic Loving Pablo and the gentle drama Mondays in the Sun. With The Good Boss, they change gear dramatically, skilfully balancing humour with a merciless critique of greed.  

Please note: The Good Boss will be screened in the original language with English subtitles.
