The hand that rocks the cradle

In the coastal town of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico we meet the pregnant 17-year-old Valeria, who lives with her boyfriend Mateo and her older sister Clara. When their mother shows up to help, the stage is set for a wildly entertaining yet deeply disturbing psychological drama which will linger with you long after you've left the cinema. APRIL'S DAUGHTER offers up one of the worst mothers in film history, and is another triumph for Mexican auteur Michel Franco.
