The Olive Tree (El olivo)

Part of the Once Upon a Time in Spain Strand


With a memorable script by Paul Laverty (Carla’s Song, My Name is Joe), Bollaín delivers a strong emotional drama featuring beautifully pitched performances from a cast including Anna Castillo and Javier Gutiérrez (Marshland, Champions). Castillo’s work on The Olive Tree earned her the Goya Award for Best New Actress. The Olive Tree screened at the 70th EIFF, the same year Bollaín was on the jury for the Michael Powell Award. [15]
