P. E. [Educación física]
Exequiel is a sad-sack gym teacher, a thirtysomething man- child on the cusp of a midlife crisis. Rarely changing out of his sweatpants, he lives in his childhood home with his father. His students openly mock him, and his sister can't stand to see him so unhappy. Life is stagnant until a former flame moves back to town to shake Exequiel from his arrested development. An assured debut by actor-turned-writer/director Pablo Cerda (COUNTRY MUSIC, 2011 AFI Latin American Film Festival), P. E. finds warmth and humor in the pains of growing up belatedly. Official Selection, 2012 Latinbeat (Film Society of Lincoln Center) and BAFICI Film Festivals.
