The most acclaimed international film of the year, and Germany’s official submission to the 2016 Oscar® race, Toni Erdmann is the funny, charming, unpredictable and moving story of a father doing everything in his power to reconnect with his daughter. Separated by both circumstance and temperament, Ines (Sandra Hüller in a bravura performance) is pursued by her repentant father (Peter Simonischek) who feels he has important, if tardy, life lessons to impart to his only child. Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. (Germany/Austria, 2016)
