This road comedy from Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men) is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth. Gael García Bernal (Neruda) and Diego Luna (Rogue One, Milk) shot to international stardom as a pair of Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Maribel Verdú, Goya in Bordeaux) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips the two men physically and emotionally bare. Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki, Y Tu Mamá También is a funny and moving look at human desire.
