DESPUÉS DE LUCÍA/AFTER LUCIA
Parental Advisory- Explicit sexual content. Not recommended for under 15 years of age.
“The brutal drama packs a wallop…”- The Hollywood Reporter. After the death of his wife, Roberto and his teenage daughter, Alejandra, move to Mexico City for a new start. Each coping alone with their grief and unfamiliar surroundings, father and daughter barely communicate and turn inward. When Alejandra becomes the center of repulsive bullying, she remains silent to protect her father from further pain. The cruel abuse and humiliation escalates. When the truth of her mistreatment is revealed, her silence exacts a dreadful toll. With his second feature, director Michel Franco elicits impressive heartfelt lead performances and convincingly natural turns from the non-professionals who play the teen tormentors.
