Eva Nova

Marko Skop’s Eva Nova, starring Emília Vášáryová, ‘the First Lady of Slovak Theatre’, has been selected as Slovakia’s Foreign Language Academy Award entry for 2017 Oscar.

Eva Nova world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival where the film won the International Critics (FIPRESCI) Discovery Award; in addition to five awards, including best film, at the Slovak Film Awards.

Eva is a film star. Or at least she was. Her heyday in the limelight is far behind her. Years of alcohol abuse, the end of the communist era and competition from younger actresses have destroyed her career. Fresh from the rehab clinic, she is determined to get her private life back on track, if nothing else. But this is a task easier said than done. In order to concentrate on her professional life, Eva entrusted her son to the care of her sister, Manka, and has since lost all contact with the now 40-year-old man. When she suddenly decides to knock at his door one day, she is hit by a wall of rejection. But Eva wants to do things right this time and will do whatever it takes to win back the love of her son.

A star of festival favorites When the Cat Comes and A Jester’s Tale, as well as Dragon’s Return, Emília Vášáryová throws her all into the unglamorous characterization of Eva, even down to the inclusion of memorabilia from her own stellar career.
