#TIFF19: “PELICAN BLOOD”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
Wiebke’s (Nina Hoss) recently adopted second daughter changes drastically from wholesome to threatening, placing the lives of Wiebke and her other daughter in danger.
This Film is an examination of the lengths a mother will go for her children. Hoss turns in an unforgettable performance of the questionable Wiebke that is equally heartbreaking and compelling. Pelican Blood starts out as a Psychological Drama about a mother pushed to every possible limit, but the genre shifts along the way to a result that will have audiences shocked.
Pelican Blood screens at TIFF on Sun, Sep 8 at Scotiabank Theatre at 9:15 PM, Mon, Sep 9 at Scotiabank Theatre at 1:15 PM, and Sat, Sep 14 at Scotiabank Theatre at 9:45 PM.
