Goethe Pop Up Houston presents Toni Erdmann
Pop Up Kino, a monthly German film series, presents Maren Ade’s acclaimed comedy, Tony Erdmann.
Hardworking Ines reluctantly agrees to spend time with her estranged father when he unexpectedly reenters her life. Disguised in a tacky suit, wig, and fake teeth, Ines' father Winfried barges into her professional life pretending to be Toni Erdmann, her CEO's life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
