On the day before her first written graduation exam, a bright student falls victim to an assault that could jeopardize her entire future. Fearing the worst, her father jumps in, trying to avert a crisis, and triggers a chain of unfortunate events. Since 2007, when he was first invited to compete in the Cannes Film Festival  with his second feature (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), director Cristian Mungiu has never gone home empty-handed. That year, 4 Months… scooped up the top prize—the Golden Palm—and in 2012 Beyond the Hills brought him the Best Screenplay award (plus an award for his two main actresses). This year, he was named Best Director for Graduation, a powerful, intricate, and universal study about the imprecision of parenthood, the relativity of truth, and the ambiguity of compromise. This is the morality play at its most startling, fresh from its two smashing screenings at the New York Film Festival, where it really got people talking. A Sundance Selects release.
