A 2017 Georgian drama film, My Happy Family, will be screened at the Bahrain Cinema Club, Juffair at 7pm tonight.
The storyline follows Georgian literature teacher Manana who, on the evening of her 52nd birthday, unexpectedly announces to her family that she is leaving.
She has been married for 30 years and lives in a three-bedroom apartment in Tbilisi with her husband, parents, two children and son-in-law. The members of her family represent three generations and are completely different from each other.
When she packs her suitcase and leaves, the family is shocked and incredulous.
They wonder: Where is she going? Who upset her? She is past the ‘divorce age’, after all, and has a good husband who doesn’t drink, take drugs or beat her.
Directed by Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Grob, the film was nominated for the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
