A brash, bold, and sexy road movie. Alfonso Cuarón’s meditation on youth, sexuality, and freedom launched its leads Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal into superstardom and garnered dozens of awards internationally. Two teenaged boys, brimming with hormones and wanderlust embark in a beater of a car and make for the ocean with an older woman compelled to embrace the life she has left. Brilliant cinematography from Emmanuel Lubezki gives us a vibrant and textured view of the Mexican landscape.
