But first, she wants to embark on a very special commitment: a marriage to herself. She will soon discover that her father, her brothers and her daughter have other plans, and that changing your life is not so easy if it is not in the family script. Getting married, even to herself, is going to be the hardest thing she's ever done.

Although he was Chile’s greatest poet, Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) was forced into hiding during the government’s anti-communist crackdown in 1948. This distinctive biographical drama sees the future Nobel laureate’s life through the eyes of a police inspector (Gael García Bernal, terrific here) trying to track him down. “A stunningly inventive take on the function rather than the life of a writer … a work of such cleverness and beauty, alongside such power, that it’s hard to know how to parcel out praise.” - Jay Weissberg, Variety.
