Lorna’s Silence

Friday, February 24 - Sunday, February 26, 2012

35mm print “From the outstanding Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne (Rosetta), here’s another closely observed, sociologically astute, and amazingly naturalistic drama about moral compromise as a by-product of economic need. Lorna, an Albanian woman living in Belgium (played by the captivating Arta Dobroshi), sets out to achieve her capitalist dream of opening a snack bar with her Albanian boyfriend by letting a mobster broker a sham marriage to a local junkie (Jérémie Renier) for Belgian citizenship. As she ditches him to wed a Russian thug willing to pay big for his own legal 
entrée, LORNA’S SILENCE becomes a stunning study of 
one desperate woman’s conscience.” – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
