Description

FOCUS ¡VIVA EL CINE! In the mid-’60s, Antonio (the wonderful Javier Cámara) teaches English in a small Spanish school-by using Beatles lyrics. When he discovers that John Lennon is to film a movie (Richard Lester’s How I Won the War) in Almería, he sets out to meet him. On the way, he picks up a couple of hitchhikers: Belén, a young woman who’s pregnant, and Juanja, a teenage runaway whose overbearing dad criticized his Beatles haircut one too many times. The perennially upbeat (though somewhat socially isolated) Antonio leads our motley trio down the long and winding road to the village near the film set. Despite setbacks, Antonio remains undaunted. He manages to sneak into a screening of the movie’s dailies at the village cinema, catching a glimpse of his hero and inspiring him to continue his quest. David Trueba’s story of a nowhere man in search of his hero is a complete audience-pleaser: charming, whimsical-and a definite ticket to ride.

Natalia de Molina will be present at both screenings.
