    Graduation (Romania, drama, 128 minutes. In Romanian with subtitles. Unrated).Adrian Titieni plays a small town doctor whose central source of pride is the teenage daughter Eliza, who has been offered a scholarship to Cambridge. But to accept that scholarship, Eliza has to pass one final exam. When an assault by an unknown man the day before the exam causes her to perform below expectations, her father makes a series of under-the-table deals with school and political figures in town to secure Eliza’s future. And those compromises slowly become an inescapable web. Winner of the best director award at Cannes Film Festival, 2016. “A masterly, complex movie of psychological subtlety and moral weight, about the shabby choices people make as they claw their way up: people constrained by loyalty to others who have helped them with wrongdoing, who use those others’ corruption as an alibi for their own failings, and those who hope that the resulting system of shifty back-scratching somehow constitutes an alternative ethical system. But how about the children, those innocent souls for whose sake all this grubbiness has been endured? Should they be preserved from graduating into an infected world of compromise and secret shame?... Graduation is an intricate, deeply intelligent film, and a bleak picture of a state of national depression in Romania, where the 90s generation hoped they would have a chance to start again. There are superb performances from Titien and [Maria] Dragus. It’s a jewel in this exceptionally good Cannes lineup.” – The Guardian
