NYIFF 2015 opens with international festival favorite Margarita With A Straw.
Kwenton Bellette saw the film at Busan last year and his review was bursting with superlatives:
Margarita, With A Straw is masterfully directed and extremely clever, it manages to please the audience in a traditional captivating and tear-jerking way, while telling a ground breaking story that encourages open-mindedness. It is one of the best films of the year.
I finally got a chance to see the film in association with the Dallas IFF and I have to say that it's pretty amazing. Definitely something to put on your calendar
