Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, writer-director Carla Simón’s follow-up to her arresting debut ‘Summer 1993’ (2017), is this lovely, bittersweet and beautifully observed ensemble drama about a farming family facing an uncertain future. For as long as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking peaches from their orchard in Alacarràs, a small Catalonian village in Spain. But this year’s crop will be their last. The landowner has died, and his grandson and heir, wants them to abandon their business so he can uproot the trees and install solar panels. Coming together for the harvest, the Solés find themselves at odds as to how to go on, and discover they risk losing more than their home.
