Don’t Be Afraid
No tengas miedo | Montxo Armendáriz, 2011
Spain | 89 minutes

Silvia, a young woman from a comfortable middle-class background, harbors a dark secret: since she was a child, her father has preyed upon her sexually. After years of living through it, she finally decides to confront her torment—and her tormentor. Montxo Armendáriz (Secrets of the Heart) offers a complex, multileveled exploration of the painful, unspoken subject of incest, aided by terrific performances by Belén Rueda, Lluís Homar, and newcomer Michelle Jenner as Silvia.
