Filmfest DC - A Good Wife

Run Time: 94 Minutes

A Good Wife

Mirjana Karanović

Serbia/Bosnia/Croatia, 2016

In her directorial debut, actress Mirjana Karanović brings us a drama about a wife’s courage, a husband’s secret, and a nation’s past. She plays Milena, a middle-aged Serbian suburbanite. Her daughter, Natasha (Hristina Popović), is a successful human rights worker and although Vlada (Boris Isaković) isn’t necessarily the catch of the century, he’s more or less a decent husband. It doesn’t take long, however, for things to go downhill when Milena unearths an old VHS cassette from her husband’s days as a wartime paramilitary leader. What she sees on that tape will change her life. As both director and actor, Karanović shows a steady hand in outlining the shift in her heroine’s position from obedient wife to something stronger and more dangerous. It’s a journey of small transitions, each spelled out beautifully. Searing, courageous, and very moving, this is a film that will take hold of you.—Vancouver International Film Festival
