Summary/Review: Wilson, a political refugee from Guinea Bissau now working as a security guard in Budapest, stumbles into love with Mary, a married teacher helping him cram for Hungarian citizenship, a situation further complicated by his paternal feelings for a fellow immigrant. Of the moment in an age of ethno-nationalist rhetoric and refugee crisis headlines, THE CITIZEN is an austere powerhouse work using mostly non-professional performers. Official Selection at the **Berlin International Film Festival**. *"An involving, stacked deck of a story plus strong acting and a mix of vital themes combine to make "The Citizen" a solid drama about immigration, nationalism and survival in an often unforgiving world." - Gary Goldstein, **The Los Angeles Times***
