Road movies don’t come hotter than Alfonso Cuarón’s delightfully raunchy coming-of-age tale.
“Sexy, sad and politically charged.” —Variety
“Director Alfonso Cuarón works with a quicksilver fluidity, and the movie is fast, funny, unafraid of sexuality and finally devastating.” —New York Times
Road movies don’t come hotter than Alfonso Cuarón’s delightfully raunchy coming-of-age tale about two teens (Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal) driving across Mexico with a bodacious 28-year-old woman, who teaches them more about life than they bargained for. Like Roma, Cuaron’s provocative travelogue captures Mexico’s vast disparities between rural and urban, and between old and new world cultures.
D: Alfonso Cuaron, Mexico, subtitled, 2001, 1h45m
