Theater 5: Beanpole

In the wreckage of post-war Leningrad, two friends serve as nurses in a ward for traumatized solders while coping with their own psychic scars. But a terrible accident tests their bond, driving them into a desperate, complicated struggle for healing and happiness. Back in spring 2020, hailed this powerful drama as “one of the first essential cinematic works released in theaters this year.” See it now in Theater 5 as part of our 2020 Critics’ Picks series.
