A deceptively simple drama about a family and its thousand-year-old olive tree that is rooted in the best cinematic soil there is -- emotional truth -- The Olive Tree gets its hooks in early on, and then never lets up.

Hollywood Reporter

From internationally acclaimed director Icíar Bollaín, The Olive Tree follows a wilful and spirited young woman named Alma who embarks on a journey from the East coast of Spain to Germany in order to retrieve an ancient olive tree precious to her ailing grandfather. With the help of a variety of friends & new acquaintances, she pulls everyone she encounters into her plan with unexpected consequences for all involved.

This powerful feature film which stars Anna Castillo, Javier Gutiérrez and Pep Ambròs was written by Paul Laverty, screenwriter of Ken Loach’s The Wind that Shakes the Barley, The Angels’ Share and the BAFTA-winning I, Daniel Blake.
