Description
FOCUS ¡VIVA EL CINE! Moonlit Madrid is the backdrop to this confident, genre-defying film, which starts with that most recognizable of movie tropes: Boy and girl meet cute at a friend’s party. Zeroing in on the charismatic Él and the moody Ella, director-co-writer Rodrigo Sorogoyen slowly chips away at expectations as we follow the couple on a meandering stroll through the city. Trading their thoughts about love, secrets, and desire, Él and Ella cautiously peel back the layers of artifice and reveal their true selves. But is that what they’re really doing? Lest anyone expect a Spanish version of dialogue-driven Before Sunrise, Sorogoyen has surprises in store for his characters-and his audience-as the pervasive melancholy of the first act contorts into menace and confusion in the second. Notable for its stylish minimalism, engrossing performances, and the cult status it has achieved in its native country, Stockholm takes us hostage and doesn’t let go. US PREMIERE
