Polish master Jerzy Skolimowski’s bold new Cannes Jury Prize-winning drama follows a nomadic donkey as it experiences the best and worst mankind has to offer.
Legendary director Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End, Moonlighting) visually inventive Cannes-winning, Academy Award-nominated (Best International Feature) film follows the travels of a nomadic grey donkey named EO. After being removed from the travelling circus, he begins a trek across the Polish and Italian countryside, experiencing cruelty and kindness in equal measure, all the while observing the follies and triumphs of humankind. During his travels, EO encounters everyone from a young Italian priest (Lorenzo Zurzolo) and a Countess (Isabelle Huppert), to a rowdy Polish soccer team. EO’s journey speaks to the world around us, an equine hero boldly pointing out societal ills, and serving as warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while on a quest for freedom.
There is no more beautiful-looking film this year... EO may be one of the greatest movies ever made about the spirit of animals
