They say that no good deed goes unpunished. And in Cristian Mungiu’s masterful film Graduation, no bad deed goes unpunished, either. In this dark story of a father who only wants the best for his daughter, this desire leads him down a rabbit hole of compromise and corruption. The story is set in Cluj, Romania, but it could take place here or just about anywhere.
