THE BAD INTENTIONS [Las Malas Intenciones]

Cayetana, a precocious 9-year-old girl with a vivid imagination, spends most of her time tormenting her parents and servants and taking advice from the ghosts of famed Peruvian military heroes. Living on the outskirts of Lima in 1982, everything changes when Cayetana discovers she will soon be a big sister. Convinced she's going to die the day her baby brother is born, she begins to lash out, wreaking havoc on all those around her. Darkly funny, the first feature from filmmaker Rosario García-Montero is an unconventional coming-of-age story with a magical realism twist. Official Selection, 2011 Berlin and Los Angeles Film Festivals.
