THE CINEMA HOLD-UP
ASALTO AL CINE
2011, Ciudad Cinema, 124 min, Mexico, Dir: Iria Gomez Concheiro

A motley crew of four teenage stoners decide to rob the local multiplex, with instantly recognizable adolescent listlessness as their main motivation. Writer-director Iria Gomez Concheiro keeps the youngsters’ rapport flowing and believable as she follows the gang on their seemingly typical journey of run-ins with cops, relentless weed-smoking and casual banter, until the ante ratchets up with pleasant freshness to the goal of the day: the heist. Winner of the Best First Fiction award at the Guadalajara International Film Festival and nominated for the World Cinema award at Sundance 2011. "Announces debut director-writer Iria Gomez Concheiro as a talent worth tracking." - Variety. In Spanish with English subtitles.
