The Good Boss

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

A piercingly clever comedy from Spain, featuring Academy Award winner Javier Bardem at the top of his game.

Blanco (Bardem), the charismatic owner of a family-run scale factory, is under pressure as he covets a local award for business excellence. Everything needs to be perfect! But the veneer of the perfect company cracks as Blanco has to deal with a vengeful fired worker, a depressed supervisor, and an infatuated ambitious intern. To win the award, the manipulative "good boss" shamelessly meddles in his employees' private lives and crosses every line imaginable, unknowingly starting an explosive chain reaction with wild consequences that may leave the prize and his future hanging in the balance.

A wickedly funny workplace comedy in the style of the films of Francis Veber (The Dinner Game, The Closet).
