TRUMAN
2015, FilmRise, 108 min, Dir: Cesc Gay

Winner of five Goya Awards including Best Film, this thought-provoking take on mortality stars Ricardo Darín as Julian, a working actor who has just received a diagnosis of terminal cancer. When old buddy Tomas (Javier Camara) arrives to visit, he finds Julian more concerned about the fate of his dog, Truman. “Cesc Gay’s wise, wistful and well-observed film about two friends enjoying a final reunion in the shadow of impending death is by turns amusing and affecting — and quite often both at once.” - Joe Leydon, Variety. In Spanish and English with English subtitles.


A GUN IN EACH HAND
UNA PISTOLA EN CADA MANO
2012, 95 min, Spain, Dir: Cesc Gay

One of the wittiest recent Spanish comedies, this film takes a hilarious look at eight Spanish men entering their 40s and confronting various midlife crises (one husband suspects his wife is cheating on him, while another seeks reconciliation with his ex-wife). You can’t help but love these good-hearted and friendly fellows as they lay their lives bare; though there are many twists in their stories, there are also amusing flashes of familiarity to their situations. The incredible cast includes Jordi Molla, Javier Camara and Eduardo Noriega. In Spanish with English subtitles.
