THE GILDED CAGE screening 3rd October


The Gilded Cage































"The Gilded Cage focuses on a diligent Portuguese couple, who have long made France their home. Maria Ribeiro (Rita Blanco) works as a concierge in an upmarket residential complex in Paris, while her husband, José (Joaquim De Almeida) is a respected, hard-working foreman for a nearby construction company. They live modestly with their adult daughter, Paula (Barbara Cabrita) and teenage son, Pedro (Alex Alves Pereira) in the ground-floor apartment of said complex, with Maria seemingly on call 24/7.

Evidently, Maria and José have become indispensable to their respective bosses. So much so, that when they receive surprising news from Portugal – an unexpected inheritance has left them a sprawling family estate, which would allow them to retire early and live comfortably – the Ribeiros are faced with a dilemma. Not only must they hand in their notice, but they also face tearing Paula and Pedro – who both favour France over Portugal – away from their adopted homes."
