MAGICAL GIRL
2014, Films Distribution, 127 min, Spain/France, Dir: Carlos Vermut

Luis (Luis Bermejo) has a 12-year-old daughter with a terminal illness and a last wish – to have a dress just like the main character of her favorite Japanese anime series. The unemployed professor doesn’t have the money to purchase the dress, but thinks he can get it with a little help from a former teacher (José Sacristán) and an unbalanced young woman (Goya and Feroz winner Bárbara Lennie). Vermut’s sure directorial hand weaves multiple storylines together in this haunting (and occasionally intense) drama. In Spanish with English subtitles.


U.S. Premiere!

NOTHING IN RETURN
A CAMBIO DE NADA
2015, 6 Sales, 93 min, Spain, Dir: Daniel Guzmán

Seeking escape from his parents’ acrimonious divorce, teen Dario (Miguel Herrán) gets into minor scrapes with lifelong buddy Luismi (Antonio Bachiller) and finds a surrogate family in Madrid with a mechanic and a 90-year-old junk dealer. With his background as an actor, writer-director Guzmán has a sharp eye for detail, and this Málaga Best Film winner has an appealing naturalism from first frame to last. “A high-energy, feel-good movie with the warmest of hearts.” – Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter. In Spanish with English subtitles.
