Upon learning that a child she plans to adopt is soon to be born, Malena (Spanish actress Barbara Lennie) travels from Buenos Aires to Argentina’s Misiones Province brimming with hope. It is only upon arrival, however, that Malena is informed of the biological mother’s demands for much more money than was agreed upon, prompting Malena to petition her estranged husband for help—inciting a legally and ethically thorny journey in which numerous small compromises are dwarfed by a deep-seated maternal impulse.

This sensitive, intelligent drama from director Diego Lerman stands poised at the intersection of biological instinct and social responsibility, raising difficult questions and sustaining our conflicted sympathies. The stakes are high for everyone in A Sort of Family, though the character with the most to lose or gain is the one who doesn’t yet have a voice.

This film is also featured in the 2018 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition film category.
