A Coach’s Daughter Lukasz Grzegorzek. 2018. Poland
Fri 19 March @ 8:00 am - Sun 18 April @ 5:00 pm
Maciej is devoted to his 17-yr-old daughter Wiktoria, a rising tennis star whom Maciej, as her coach, pushes hard to improve her game. During one hot summer, as they trek across Poland from one tournament to another, the daily grind of hard training begins to seem absurd to Wiktoria, and the first impulses of rebellion against a regime which has ruled her every move for years begin to stir. When Maciej’s new young trainee Igor joins them, the coach’s daughter realises there’s a life outside tennis, and the die is cast for a major showdown. Marked by a tremendous performance from Karolina Bruchnicka, A Coach’s Daughter is a deft examination of a paternal love so consuming it borders on the destructive.
