Susanne Wuest in Goodnight Mommy

In a lonesome house in the countryside in the heat of mid-summer, nine-year-old twin brothers await their mother’s return from the hospital. When she comes home with her face obscured by bandages, nothing is like before and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying struggle with fatal consequences…

Starring Susanne Wuest and brothers Elias Schwarz and Lukas Schwarz in their feature film debut, and written and directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala (who are seen and heard in conversation in the discs’ sole bonus feature), Goodnight Mommy is already generating strong Oscar buzz as Austria’s official 2016 entry for Best Foreign Language Film.
