Las niñas bien
- English subtitles
A scathing and glamorous depiction of the wives of upper-class men in 1982 Mexico, inspired by the writings of famed contemporary satirist Guadalupe Loaeza.
Sofia lives in the prestigious Las Lomas neighbourhood where life is picture perfect and her biggest dream is to have Julio Iglesias sing at one of her shindigs. However, her cushy routine might be in for a rude awakening as the Mexican economy inches towards a debt crisis, and cracks slowly start to appear in Sofia’s perfect world.
There is enormous clarity and control in this film from Mexican director Alejandra Márquez Abella, and a tremendous lead performance from Ilse Salas. – The Guardian
