Movie Diary 4/19/2017

Graduation (Cristian Mungiu, 2016). Ethical dominoes begin to fall when a father pressures his daughter to ace her exams, so that she’ll get out of Romania for college and not get stuck the way he did. A typically dense Romanian film from the director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, with an almost instant sense of how a system works when it’s broken.
