Incredible, heart-wrenching film about the family you choose. Every character is whole, and every moment is understated. I picked this because of the poster, which gives off major Little Miss Sunshine vibes. I was glad to see that this film has its own voice. The writing feels personal and intimate, making the family drama "cliche" feel fresh. I was impressed when I learned that this is Claudia Sainte-Luce's debut. Her films definitely deserve more love.
This Mexican film marks the end of my March Around the World challenge. I can't believe I actually completed it and added five female-directed bonuses. I had a great time.
