On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
During the marijuana bonanza, a violent decade that saw the origins of drug trafficking in Colombia, Rapayet and his indigenous family get involved in a war to control the business that ends up destroying their lives and their culture.
The poem that Arnold reads to Gloria is called "For a Young Friend Who Tried to Take His Own Life" by Chilean poet Claudio Bertoni. See more »
When Gloria is at the paintball field, her guide (and boyfriend) is a former Marine and the manager/owner of the attraction. When he leaves the rifle in her hands, he points out it is on Automatic mode. Nevertheless, when Gloria shoots, according to the sound, as well as the results, it is obviously on Manual mode - shooting bullets one by one. See more »
Gloria is a fifty-something long-term divorcée, with two grown-up children and with a subdued professional life. She's even a young granny since a short time. In short, all lights are red. It's only missing menopause... And then arrives Arnold, a charming guy who turns out to be stuck within a castrating environment. This film is desperately pessimistic, despite the manifold disco hits, and reminds the universal difficulty of 'rebuilding' its life, following a divorce with child(ren). The duo Julianne Moore + John Turturro is stunning, knowing that Julianne Moore is gorgeous, as usual.
