"You think you can make a huge scene in front of everyone?" Cohen Media Group has revealed an official US trailer for an award-winning Spanish film titled The Good Boss, which already opened in Spain last fall. This film premiered at the 2021 San Sebastian Film Festival, and ended up with 20 nominations to the 36th Goya Awards, winning six awards in total including Best Picture, Director, Actor, Screenplay, Score. Julio Blanco, the charismatic and manipulative owner of a family-run factory making industrial scales in a Spanish provincial town, meddles in the lives of his employees in an attempt to win an award for business excellence. Hoping to resolve any problems from his workers in enough time, crossing all the lines in the process. Javier Bardem stars as Blanco, with Manolo Solo, Almudena Amor, Óscar de la Fuente, Sonia Almarcha, Fernando Albizu, Tarik Rmili, and Rafa Castejón. This looks like another good film about how terrible most corporations are, even when they pretend to be good and get awards, they're still run by idiots who treat their workers like crap. And this looks especially funny, too! Have a look below.
