28th STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. DAY 2, NOV 9th 2017. International premiere at the festival on Nov 8th.
A beautiful, tragic, slow-burning, gripping, well-acted, well-written, well-directed drama about guilt, hereditary sin and relational struggles.
The sixth feature film by Polish writer-director Anna Jadowska, "Wild Roses" (2017) features a very strong performance by actress Marta Nieradkiewicz. The themes of adultery, out-of-marriage pregnancy and relationships under pressure are impressively handled.
