To close the festival on Sunday 16th December, Alfonso Cuarón’s funny, hot-blooded, and moving road comedy Y Tu Mamá También will screen in a 2K restoration. Enjoy the night with a drink on arrival.

Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuarón (Roma, Gravity, Children of Men) had his breakout hit with the perfectly balanced road comedy, Y tu mamá también starring Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna. The film tells the story of Julio and Tenoch, seventeen-year-olds who have had a long friendship despite their different backgrounds.

With their respective girlfriends away in Europe, Julio (Bernal) and his upper-class friend Tenoch (Luna) are looking forward to a summer full of fun and foolishness. During a wedding, they meet Luisa (Maribel Verdú)—the 28-year-old wife of Tenoch’s scholarly cousin—and try to convince her to go on a road trip to a made-up beach paradise the two claim is on the Oaxacan coast. To their surprise, Luisa — who is looking to escape her troubled life for a spell—agrees to go along. Two days into the trip, tension starts to build between the two friends, who are not-so-quietly vying for her affection. Soon simmering jealousies boil over into savage arguments, threatening to completely destroy their friendship.

Shot beautifully by cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and interspersed with small visual reminders of political unrest juxtaposed with the natural beauty of the country; this is a film not to be missed.

6:30pm - Drink on Arrival
6:45 pm - Screening of Y Tu Mamá También
