Boasting a trio of actresses at the top of their game, director Pablo Trapero’s beautifully crafted multilayered drama explores the emotional ties that bind a wealthy Argentine family.

Counsellor Augusto Montemayor (Isidoro Tolcachir), his severe wife Esmeralda (Graciela Borges), and their younger unmarried daughter, Mía (the striking Martina Gusmán) enjoy an outwardly perfect life on their sprawling family ranch outside Buenos Aires. Their veneer of peace and prosperity is set to be turned upside down when Augosto suffers a stroke, bringing his other beautiful daughter Eugenia (Bérénice Bejo) and eventually her husband back home after a 10-year absence. The sisters have always shared an exceptionally close relationship and despite the circumstances, their reunion is exuberantly celebrated. But there are skeletons in almost every closet in this home, and the tides begin to turn as old relationships are resumed and dormant unresolved tensions finally explode.

Like Trapero’s multi-award-winning The Clan (SFF15), The Quietude is infused with tragic underpinnings of the horrors of the country’s military dictatorship and offers an expert depiction of blood relations forced to reckon with themselves.
