Acclaimed Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) returns with this searing human saga about a father driven to extremes in order to protect his daughter’s future.

Romeo Aldea (Adrian Titieni) is a doctor in a small town. He channels his ambitions for a better life into his teenage daughter, Eliza (Maria Dragus), who is just one exam away from securing a scholarship to a prestigious British university. But when Eliza is attacked on the night before her test, endangering her ability to pass, Romeo takes matters into his own hands to ensure her success. Winner of the Best Director prize at at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Graduation is a masterful look at the complex moral choices and compromises some people make when desperation takes hold.
