There will be a Q&A with the writer Adam Feinstein

This Argentinian comedy-drama has a stellar pedigree – an Oscar-winning director (Campanella won for thriller The Secret of their Eyes, also shown by WFC) and a cast of some of the most celebrated actors of their generation. Argentine cultural icon Aleandro and the renowned Alterio play the parents of another celebrated actor, Darin, the eponymous restaurant owner experiencing a midlife crisis. The film was a critical and box office hit in Argentina and Spain and received a US distribution.

“tender, beautifully acted dramatic comedy…plays like an Argentine version of Woody Allen’s Manhattan” Jennifer Green, Screen Daily

“entertaining quasi-critique of modern manners whose comedy arises out of its gravity” John Anderson, Newsday
