THE RETIREE [La Jubilada]

Fabiola (Paola Lattus) returns to her hometown of Los Andes after living in Santiago for the past few years. Although she moved to the big city with ambitions, she ended up working as a performer in low-budget porn videos. Now 30 and hoping to make a new start, she moves back into the family flat with her widowed, retired father and older sister, and finds a job managing the local junkyard. Fabiola wants to move on with her life —but will others let her? Writer/director Jairo Boisier's throwback kitchen-sink drama has tremendous heart, with fine performances from the entire cast. Official Selection, 2012 Rotterdam Film Festival.
