In a suspenseful and highstakes climax, this gripping movie pits a desire for the good life against ethical convictions and individual achievement against communal morality, compelling its characters&mdash;as well as its audience&mdash; to confront the complexities of doing business in 21st century America.<br /> <em>Presented by the Global Film Series</em><br /> </span> <div><span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><br /> </span></div> <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963096">Click here to RSVP</a></span>

    <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;">In what the New York Times has referred to as a &ldquo;wrenching, exciting&hellip;study in the evil of banality,&rdquo; this critically acclaimed film explores the terrifying pathology of an outwardly normal family who &ldquo;happens to keep hostages tied up in the basement&rdquo; during the Argentine military dictatorship in the 1980s&mdash;a regime that violently &ldquo;disappeared&rdquo; its opponents. Based on real-life events, the film examines this period from the perspective of the perpetrators and collaborators, compelling viewers to consider the complex psychology of authoritarian power and the moral justifications we allow.<br /> <em>Presented by the Global Film Series</em><br /> </span> <div><span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><br /> </span></div> <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963168">Click here to RSVP</a></span>
