Espinazo del diablo (The Devil's Backbone)

Twelve-year-old Carlos is the latest arrival to Santa Lucia School, an imposing stone building that shelters the orphans of the Republican militia and politicians during the last days of the Spanish Civil War. Carlos gradually uncovers the dark ties that bind the inhabitants of the school: hidden riches, sexual intrigue and the restless ghost of a murdered student. This film lends itself to discussions about bullying. 2001, 110 minutes, MPAA rating: R (for language, some graphic violence and a scene of sexuality), video in Spanish with English subtitles, DVD in Spanish with optional English subtitles.
