To celebrate the release of Romanian drama Child’s Pose from StudioCanal, out on DVD and download on December 16th, we’re giving you the chance to win one of two copies for yourself.

Winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, Child’s Pose is a touching film about how we can suffocate our children with maternal love and the marks that parents leave on their offspring’s personalities. Written and directed by Calin Peter Netzer, the film is a portrayal of contemporary high-class Romania and the low-level corruption and trading of influence within the core social institutions.

The film stars Luminita Gheorghiu as Cornelia, an elegant and well-connected woman at the pinnacle of society, only she hides a secret. Cornelia has an estranged son, Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache), who resists all of her attempts to re-establish their relationship. But when Barbu is found at the wheel of a car involved in a fatal collision, Cornelia’s character and public image are cast into doubt as her strong maternal instinct turns into something much darker in her ruthless pursuit to protect her son.
