Trivia

During a layover at Miami airport on the way to promote the film at the 2012 Tribeca Film Featival, actors Anailín de la Rúa de la Torre (Lila) and Javier Nuñez Florián (Elio) defected to seek political asylum in the US. They never actually attended the film premier in New York. The two actors, who played twins in the film, resurfaced and told news outlets they had fallen in love during shooting and that they were now expecting twins of their own. See more »

Fantastic screenplay script and acting
24 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic movie. All actors enacted their characters very well. The script (even though its in Spanish) and screen play are great!! Or more appropriately, the sub-titles convey the mood of a scene without losing anything in translation. The movie is action packed, has nail- biting moments, and shows a lot of fun and excitement along with desperation. The sound track is beautiful and makes me want to visit Cuba.

The Q & A session at the end of the movie in the TriBeCa Film Festival was very insightful about how the movie was made, despite the challenges. A small team of extremely dedicated and talented people have come together as a great crew to make this fantastic movie. Would love to watch this again in the theaters - can't wait for it's national theater release in the US. Hope it gets nominated for an Oscar and wins too!
