Blanco, the charismatic owner of a family-run factory, is under pressure as he covets a local award for business excellence. Everything needs to be perfect! But the veneer of the perfect company cracks as Blanco has to deal with a vengeful fired worker, a depressed supervisor, and an infatuated ambitious intern.
To win the competiton, the manipulative “good boss” shamelessly meddles in his employees’ private lives and crosses every line imaginable, unknowingly starting an explosive chain reaction with wild consequences.
The Good Boss is a biting and acerbic character study with Javier Bardem in the titular role and a darkly funny social satire of the workplace. This is the third collaboration between award-winning director Fernando León de Aranoa and Academy Award© winner Javier Bardem, following Loving Pablo (Venice 2017 Official Selection) and Mondays in the Sun.
