Good Boss, The (BLU-RAY)
Academy Award Winner Javier Bardem stars as Blanco, proprietor of Básculas Blanco, a Spanish company producing industrial scales in a provincial Spanish town, which awaits the imminent visit from a committee that will decide if they merit a local Business Excellence award: everything has to be perfect when the time comes. Working against the clock, Blanco pulls out all the stops to address and resolve issues with his employees, crossing every imaginable line in the process.
A biting dark comedy, THE GOOD BOSS a portrait of depersonalization and the deterioration of labor relations, a landscape of a time in which outdated concepts such as solidarity, ethics or the common good seem to have been erased from the employment map, only to be replaced by the logic of profit and precariousness.
Shortlisted for Best International Film at the 2022 Academy Awards and nominated for a record 20 Goya Awards in 2022, winning for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score & Best Editing.
