Winfried (Peter Simonischek) rarely sees Ines (Sandra Hüller) since she left for a high-powered corporate job. So when he drops by to visit, the two quickly find themselves at odds as his quirky antics clash with her slick lifestyle. Determined to be part of her world, Winfried reappears as alter ego “Toni Erdmann,” an outrageous life coach who turns his daughter’s career plans upside-down. In the course of all the madness, the two discover that maybe they have more in common than they imagined.

Written and directed by Maren Ade (The Forest for the Trees), Toni Erdmann won the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and was named “Best Film of the Year” from a host of international publications including Sight and Sound, Cahiers du Cinéma and Film Comment.

Special features on the discs include an AFI Fest Q&A with actors Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller and Ingrid Bisu and producer Janine Jackowski, as well as a commentary track with Simonischek, Hüller and Jackowski.
