Hispanic Heritage Film Series: “El buen patrón”

Thursday, November 2, 2023

5:30 PM – 7:30 PM 

Turner Center Auditorium 

A smash hit in Spain starring Academy Award® winner Javier Bardem, The Good Boss is an acerbic character study and a darkly funny social satire of the workplace.

Blanco, the charismatic owner of a family-run factory, is under pressure as he covets a local award for business excellence. Everything needs to be perfect! But the veneer of the perfect company cracks as Blanco has to deal with a vengeful fired worker, a depressed supervisor, and an infatuated, ambitious intern. To win the competition, the manipulative “good boss” shamelessly meddles in his employees’ private lives and crosses every line imaginable, unknowingly starting an explosive chain reaction with wild consequences.
