HEROIC LOSERS
LA ODISEA DE LOS GILES
2019, 116 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Sebastián Borensztein

Ricardo Darín and son Chino team onscreen for the first time in this crowd-pleasing heist comedy, Argentina’s official Oscar submission for International Film. Set at the end of 2001, it centers on a group of townspeople who pool their money to set up an agricultural cooperative only to lose it all in the country’s banking crisis (the “corralito”). But when they learn they’d been set up by a banker, the motley crew devise a plan to steal back what’s rightfully theirs. With Luis Brandoni.
