Czech Republic/France. Dir. Petr Václav. 2014, 102 mins. With Klaudia Dudová, David Ištok, Sára Makulová. The Way Out is a heartrending drama of Romany life in Central Europe. Klaudia Dudová delivers a captivating performance as Žaneta, a young Romany woman who struggles to survive in the face of anti-gypsy prejudice. Still, as she faces setback after setback in her quest to find steady employment, Žaneta perseveres, determined to make a better life for her family. Told with an almost documentary-like realism and admirable understatement, The Way Out was named Best Film at the Czech Lion awards. New York premiere.
