4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days is a 2007 Romanian drama movie, written and directed by Christian Mungiu, focusing on a tragic true story from communist Romania.. The movie is about Gabriela ‘Gabita’ Dragut (Laura Vasiliu) and Otilia Mihartescu (Anamaria Marinca), two best friends attending university in an unnamed Romanian town. When Gabita discovers that she has fallen pregnant, but is not ready for the responsibilities of being a single mother, the girls arrange a secret meeting with a man by the name of Mr. Bebe (Vlad Ivanov), who should perform an illegal abortion for her in the hotel room upon which they agree. All does not go well, however, as there are first complications with the hotel and then with Mr. Bebe, who is immoral and demands a high price, of more than just monetary value, from both girls in order to perform the less-than-safe abortion. Gabita’s lies also frustrate Otilia, straining their relationship. 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days won 23 award and was nominated for an additional 19 awards, including a Golden Globe.moreless
