LOVELY RITA

Directed by : Jessica HAUSNER

Country : AUSTRIA, GERMANY Length : 80 minutes

Synopsis

Rita is an unruly outsider: her classmates laugh at her behavior, her teachers find her rude, and her parents lock her in to make her obey. On the verge of becoming a woman, her clumsy sexual awakening leads her to intimacy with a schoolboy, too young, and a bus driver, too old. Her efforts to break out of her solitude isolate her even more, until one day Rita steps across the border.
