Winner of Best Screenplay at Cannes and nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar, Footnote is the story of a great rivalry between a father and son. Both eccentric professors, they have dedicated their lives to their work. The father seems a stubborn purist who fears the establishment.
His son, Uriel, appears to strive on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition.
But one day, the tables turn. The two men switch places when the father learns he is to be awarded the most valuable honor one can receive. His desperate need for recognition is betrayed, his vanityexposed. Uriel is torn between pride and envy. Will he sabotage his father's glory?
Footnote is the story of insane competition, the admiration and envy for a role model, bringing father and son to a final, bitter confrontation.
We have ten double passes up for grabs, just tell us, in 25 words or less, who is the cleverist person you know, and why.
Footnote is out in cienmas on April 19.
