"Life According To Muriel"
Directed by Eduardo Milewicz
A critics' favorite in
its native Argentina, Life According to Muriel is a moving drama
with warm touches of humor. An abandoned wife and mother leaves the hectic
life of Buenos Aires behind her, taking her nine-year-old daughter with
her to the country. An accident forces them to stay at a run-down hotel,
where a cautious friendship with the proprietor--a single mother with
children of her own--develops into a makeshift family. The cast includes
Jorge Perugorria (Strawberries & Chocolate, Guantanamera).
Spanish with English subtitles. 97 minutes.
