Coming Soon

Well into their 30s, Juan Nuñez (Gael García Bernal) and Benjamín Wilson (Leonardo Ortizgris) still can’t seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents’ homes. Instead, they wallow in comfortable limbo in the district of Satélite, Mexico City’s version of an American suburb. On a fateful Christmas Eve, however, they decide it’s finally time to distinguish themselves by executing the most infamous cultural artifacts heist in all of Mexican history, looting the country's iconic National Anthropology Museum. Inspired by true events, and shot on never-before-filmed locations in Mexico, Museo is a sardonic cautionary tale that underscores the old adage: you don’t know what you have until you lose it. Also starring Alfredo Castro and Simon Russell Beale, the crime drama is director/co-writer Alonso Ruizpalacios's second feature after the award-winning festival hit Güeros. (Partially subtitled)
