Eva Nova & In the Cube

films, Slovak Film Harvest Festival 2018

January 25, 2018 , 8:30 - 10:30 pm

[1st Floor]

A Slovak variation of sorts on John Cassavetes’ Opening Night, the intimate character study Eva Nova (Emilia Vasaryova) chronicles the difficulties of a Communist-era actress and recovering alcoholic in her sixties as she finally tries to make amends after having sobered up again. But the juicy lead roles have practically dried up for someone her age, and even so, Eva’s long history of out-of-control behavior, fueled by her drinking binges, has soured her relationships with her former colleagues as well as her loved ones.
