The film pick of the week is Rudo y Cursi, the directorial debut of Carlos Cuaron. The film brings back the acting duo of Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, who both had their breakthroughs in Y Tu Mama Tambien. The film centers around two brother living in a rural town in Mexico, and they both get a chance at soccer stardom when a scout comes looking for talent. Both brothers have their vices, which lead to huge consequences later on in the film.
Another notable thing about the film is the soundtrack, which features a number of acts such as Devendra Banhart, Juana Molina, Black Lips and Dios Malos covering regional Mexican songs. The soundtrack was released on May 5th. Check out the trailer below and a hilarious music video of Gael Garcia Bernal singing “I Want You to Want Me” from the soundtrack.
