Litigante

A lawyer struggles to care for her young son and ailing mother amidst a developing scandal at work in this Colombia-set drama from Franco Lolli.

"Between raising her young son, taking care of her ill-tempered, cancer-battling mother, navigating her career as a top-notch lawyer dealing with a major corruption scandal, Silvia (Carolina Sanín) could very well be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. And what if the answer to all this was simply... love?" (Critics' Week, Cannes Film Festival)

It's a film of small, precisely rendered moments rather than major emotional flourishes.

The movie often nails the fractiousness, fear and pain of caring for a dying loved one, driven home by immaculate performances from Sanin, Gomez and Sarria as two generations of women with more in common than they might like to admit.
