Diego Luna’s “Abel” (Cert 15) Plus Q&A with Director Diego Luna

To mark the cinema release of critically acclaimed Mexican drama “Abel”, from actor-turned-director Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Milk), Network Releasing and the Curzon Soho will be holding a special screening of the film followed by a Q&A with Diego Luna and producer Pablo Cr…uz. Each ticket purchased will also include a free Mexican Beer!
Executive produced by Gael Garcia Bernal and John Malkovich, “Abel” stars Christopher Ruiz-Esparza in the title role (a mere 9 years of age at the time of filming), a young boy whose strange behaviour and refusal to speak has landed him in a mental health facility. His single mother is convinced that a reunion between Abel and his younger brother and older sister will be the answer to repairing his condition, so she arranges for Abel’s doctor to release the boy for a single week. Abel starts speaking the day after returning home but the joy of the mother quickly turns into confusion as the child starts speaking and behaving as a fully-grown adult- her missing partner! Not wishing to worsen his condition the mother and the siblings go along with Abel’s unorthodox behaviour. But then his father decides to show up…

Disturbing, surreal and darkly funny, “Abel” follows a great tradition of fabular Mexican film-making from the likes of Guillermo del Toro. “Abel” also deals with an important issue in Mexico – parental absenteeism – increasingly common as many Mexican men abandon their families to find work in the United States.

Price: £12.50 / £9.50 cineastes plus free Mexican beer
