The Good Boss - Official Trailer (AU)


Slickly entertaining, considering its rather weighty subject matter, this dark workplace dramedy stars the veteran actor Javier Bardem as the boss of a family-run factory plagued by economic woes, employee foibles and the clashes brought on by Spain's burgeoning multiculturalism. With a style reminiscent of the Coen brothers' trademark cinematic sarcasm, León de Aranoa artfully spins a piercingly clever tale of bad behavior trying to pass itself off as good. D: Fernando León de Aranoa, Spain, subtitled, 2021, 1h59m
