OPENS AT METROGRAPH JULY 8
Metrograph is pleased to announce the NYC THEATRICAL Premiere of Murina, OPENING July 8.
On a remote island off Croatia’s Adriatic coast, tensions escalate between restless, independent-minded 17-year-old Julija (Gracija Filipović, in a star-making turn) and her domineering father, Ante, when the arrival of a wealthy family friend, Javier, threatens to re-open old wounds. As Ante haggles over a life-changing deal with Javier, Julija finds herself drawn towards her globe-trotting visitor, who offers her a glimpse of liberation—as well as a taste of desire and violence. The lush Mediterranean setting, as masterfully shot by cinematographer Hélène Louvart (The Lost Daughter, Happy as Lazzaro), acquires a sinister beauty in this piercing coming-of-age drama, executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
