Spanish with English subtitles

With Maribel Verdú, Antonio De la Torre, Eduard Fernández, Nora Navas, Marian Álvarez, Alex O’Dogherty, Ginés García Millán, Paula Cancio, Marcos Ruíz

On her 40th birthday, Elia gathers together a few select relatives and friends at a luxury country house to tell them some extraordinary news: she has won a Jackpot of 140.000.000 €! From that moment onwards, as the guests become aware that Elia has come by 140 million Euros, the atmosphere becomes increasingly tense and what started off as shared happiness gradually transforms into greedy plotting to take Elia’s fortune.


“Led by the always extraordinary Maribel Verdú (Y tu mamá también, Pan’s Labyrinth), Happy 140’s astonishing ensemble cast boasts twenty-eight nominations and seven Goya Awards between them. This story of this woman wanting to celebrate her good fortune in the company of her closest relatives and friends—and an ex-lover she ardently hopes to win back—is the most powerful Spanish film of the past year. Querejeta has clearly inherited something special from her father, the prolific, illustrious producer Elías Querejeta, but she also has become, in her own right, a distinctive and distinguished cineaste—and one of the finest working in Spain today.” – Orlando Rojas, Miami International Film Festival
