Announcing: THE GOOD BOSS as 39th Miami Film Festival Opening Film and PLAZA CATEDRAL as Closing Film
ANNOUNCING: THE GOOD BOSS AS MIAMI FILM FESTIVAL OPENING FILM AND PLAZA CATEDRAL AS CLOSING FILM
Nominated for a record-breaking 20 Goya Awards in its home country, The Good Boss is written and directed by Fernando León de Aranoa, a five-time Goya winner. THE GOOD BOSS spotlights Blanco (Javier Bardem), the seemingly benevolent owner of a family business that produces industrial scales in a provincial Spanish town. The company awaits an imminent visit from a committee that will judge whether they merit a local Business Excellence award. Working against the clock, Blanco pulls out all the stops to ensure everything is perfect, setting off an explosive series of events with shocking repercussions.
The Good Boss will open Miami Film Festival on Friday, March 4.
PLAZA CATEDRAL is director Abner Benaim’s sophomore narrative feature and stars Ilse Salas (The Good Girls, Güeros, Cantinflas) and Manolo Cardona (Narcos). Plaza Cathedral is a moving story about a grieving luxury realtor who forges an unlikely bond with a tough street kid (Fernando Xavier De Casta). The compassionate drama shines a light on Panamanian social justice. In addition to closing the 2022 Miami Film Festival, Plaza Catedral will compete for the Festival’s $10,000 HBO Ibero-American Feature Film Awards.
Plaza Catedral will close Miami Film Festival after the Awards Night ceremony on Saturday, March 12. An additional final day of MFF screenings will take place on Sunday, March 13.
Tickets for the general public will go on sale on February 11.
