The Olive Tree

Drama, Comedy 1h 38m 2016

AroView: Spanish actor-director Iciar Bollain and Ken Loach’s regular screenwriter Paul Laverty join forces for this warm and sometimes humorous road movie sympathetic to social justice.

Anna Castillo is delightful as a restless, headstrong 20-year-old woman who, together with her uncle and friends, travel across Europe to retrieve the 2,000-year-old tree whose loss devastated her grandfather and that is now in the possession of a German corporation.

“Successfully combines traditional, sturdy storytelling with contemporary issues and current, vibrant characters, and the result is a film that feels crowd-pleasing, artful, and important.” ~ Flickering Myth.
