A small gem
12 September 2019 | by fcioccaSee all my reviews

I discovered this movie just randomly, while I was looking something to watch. Matt Bomer, that I remebered acting in White Collar and the fifth season of AHS, pushed me to watch it. I had really low expectations, I never heard about it, and I did not even watched a trailer, so I did not know what I was going to watch. I was surprised at the end: it is very enjoyable, and it treats some really serious topic, in a easygoing way, which is not easy at all.

Sean is a forecast reporter that suddently find himself completely alone. He needs to repaint the dock of his house and he hire this latino mam named Ernesto. The two start to have a connection that very quickly develop into an amazing friendship, that will help Sean to get over a very difficult moment in his life.

Mat Bomer and Alejandro Patiño portrait two men that, despite their differences, can bound together by demolishing every wall and social prejudice. And the movie is centered completely on them, it develop very nicely their relationship from the beginning, until the end. I never felt bored: every scene has the right timing, secondary characters only need to add a little bit of dynamicity, but they have the right space.

Papi Chulo is an entertaining movie and you will pass a pleasant one hour and a half. I really suggest this movie if you just want to relax, by watching at the same time a smart one.
