Emily K. Rose Emily K. Rose ... Margot


Martin and Margot have been writers since they could write and lovers since the poet, La Bestia, brought them together. They have decided to travel through Guatemala to search for him in an old rickety land rover in a constant need of repair, with a low budget that they cannot afford. What begins as an adventure, soon takes a downward turn with an unexpected pregnancy that changes their perspective of one another and threatens their purpose. Amid their internal chaos and frenzied writing they are soon confronted with responsibility they cannot run away from, and are faced with choices that may tear them apart in a way that neither Margot's level headedness, nor Martin's optimism can fix. Written by Irene Herbruger

User Reviews

So unbelievably tired of these whitewashed versions of Guatemala
12 December 2020 | by vesperviewSee all my reviews

Not the first film by this filmmaker that is done primarily in English and with white actors, despite being a "Guatemalan" movie. A total cultural disconnect that is quite embarrassing to watch.
