"Catalan writer-director Carla Simón confirms the promise of her debut 'Summer 1993' in this poignant, rippling study of an extended family being forced off their farm." - Guy Lodge, Variety

"The film strikes a deft balance between idyllic reminiscence and melancholy for a cherished place..." - Caitlin Quinlan, Little White Lies

Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, Alcarràs is a beautifully observed ensemble drama full of heart. As far as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking the peaches from their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain. With the sudden news that they face eviction, the Solés find themselves at odds as to how to go on, risking the very ties that bind them. With a remarkable cast of non-professionals, Carla Simón creates an authentic and moving contemplation of the fragility of family and childhood.
