- European Union Film Festival 2020
The highest grossing movie in Bulgaria in 2018, this second feature by talented director Martin Makariev is a lively romantic comedy with an edge. It is the emotionally charged story of Lora Angelova (played by popular Bulgarian actress Yana Marinova, who also co-wrote the script), a dedicated, intelligent history teacher who is torn between her love of teaching and her not-so-distant past as a professional dancing competitor, which leads some to underestimate her intellect. Everything in Lora’s life seems in balance until she applies for the job to become the headmistress at her school. Suddenly, new forces in her life are at play, including an ambitious colleague also wants the job, and will challenge her. Moreover, the school has just hired a new music teacher and he will have a say in who gets the position. Whom will he choose to side with, and what can Lora do about it? As the school’s prom night approaches, the answers become less and less certain in a situation made ever more complex (and, of course, entertaining) by the hearts, minds, and, in some cases, dancing shoes of those involved.
This virtual screening includes pre-recorded introductions by Attraction stars Luiza Grigorova-Makariev and Yana Marinova.
