Wild Pear Tree

Nova Exclusive! The new film from Palme d’Or-winning Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Winter Sleep, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia), THE WILD PEAR TREE follows the homecoming of a young writer and the colliding destinies and competing concerns of fathers and sons.

Sinan (Aydın Doğu Demirkol) is an aspiring writer who returns to the village he grew up in, and while his image of his childhood home grew rosy in his absence, being confronted again by its realities quickly causes Sinan to feel restricted and for resentment to build inside him against people, especially his blustering father Idris (Murat Cemcir). An inveterate gambler in debt to everyone in town, Idris embodies the messy chaos that Sinan wants to completely avoid in his own life. But Sinan is making problems for himself in other ways: despite his arrogance, his literary talents may not be as golden as he believes them to be.
