2011, Elissavet Chronopoulou, Greece, 100 min.
With Alexia Terezaki, Yannis Kokiasmenos
The scrappy 18-year-old daughter of a small-town prostitute storms the bastion of the rich and powerful in this drama set in the elite country-club world of horse trials and show jumping. Sheer talent and an unbreakable bond with a valuable and temperamental thoroughbred may not be enough for Chara, who aspires to rise from stable hand to champion by challenging the mistress of a womanizing horse-breeder for the favor of her patron. In Greek with English subtitles.
