"Part low-key stalker thriller and part woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous-breakdown character study, anchored by [Natasa] Stork’s ever-shifting performance as the slightly unstable medical professional." —David Fear, Rolling Stone

Hungary's Official Oscar Submission, Preparations To Be Together..., is an enthralling and beautifully acute tale of longing and self-deception. Márta (Natasa Stork), a 40-year-old neurosurgeon, falls in love and leaves her shining American career to begin life anew in Budapest with the man she loves. When he fails to show up at their designated rendezvous point at the Liberty Bridge, Márta begins a desperate search for him but when she does, he claims that they have never met before. Reminiscent of master auteur Krzysztof Kieślowski and shot on entrancing 35mm, Preparations garnered international acclaim at the Venice and Toronto film festivals and is one of the year's must-see films.
