Benjamin Millepied - 2023 - 116m - In Spanish & English with English Subtitles

A young and fiercely independent woman is forced to flee her home in the Mexican desert following the brutal murder of her mother. Carmen (MELISSA BARRERA) survives a terrifying and dangerous illegal border crossing into the US, only to be confronted by a lawless volunteer border guard, who cold-bloodedly murders two other immigrants in her group. When the border guard and his patrol partner, Aidan (PAUL MESCAL)—a Marine with PTSD—become embroiled in a deadly standoff, Carmen and Aidan are forced to escape together. They make their way north towards Los Angeles in search of Carmen’s mother’s best friend, the mercurial Masilda (ROSSY DE PALMA) and owner of La Sombra nightclub - a sanctuary of music and dance. Carmen and Aidan find both solace and their unwavering love for one another in the safety of Masilda’s magical refuge, but time is running out as the police hunt closes in.

"You’ll see lots of movies in 2023, and you’ll forget most of them. But “Carmen” is so sincerely passionate and peculiar that you’re bound to remember it." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Casts a transporting spell." - Jen Yamato, Los Angeles Times

"Amid open, Terrence Malick-ian vistas, nighttime compositions as studiously detailed as a Gregory Crewdson photograph and breathtaking dance sequences, what Millepied has pulled off with “Carmen” feels like a feat of visual and aural imagination." - Tomris Laffly, TheWrap
