Join the EUC for a free screening of the film The Good Boss (Fernando León de Aranoa, 2021). Starring Javier Bardem, this film was nominated for a record number of Goya Awards (the Academy Awards of Spain), and it closed last year's Chicago European Union Film Festival.

About the film: The Good Boss is a comedy-drama that reflects on toxic and paternalistic corporate mindsets. Julio Blanco (Javier Bardem) is the charismatic and manipulative CEO of a small family-run factory of industrial scales in rural Spain. Having been nominated to win a business award, Julio will do anything to ensure his current and former employees do not prevent him from winning the award.

This event is free and open to the public.
