The Seventh Continent

A provocative and chilling depiction of a family who have lost contact with one another. Anna and Georg live with their daughter Eva, and while everything appears normal, a seething malaise begins to creep to the surface, prompting Eva to pretend she is blind, just to get some attention. Brooding and tense, this emotionally shattering film about alienation packs a powerful punch, and was the stunning debut feature from Austrian auteur Michael Haneke ('Piano Teacher', 'Funny Games').
