“AFTER LUCIA”, dir. Franco, Mexico, 2012, Winner at Cannes’ (Un Certain Regard)

“The hot-button topic of school bullying provides an attention-grabbing hook for ‘After Lucia’, the grimly persuasive sophomore feature from Mexican writer-helmer-producer Michel Franco (‘Daniel and Ana’). Suggesting that teenage cruelty is no different in Mexico City than in any other major Western metropolis, pic depicts a distressing downward spiral for its pretty, charismatic protag after one drunken misstep.”
