THE RETURN [El regreso]
After a decade living in New York, Antonio begrudgingly returns to his family home in Costa Rica, where he finds his father's health in decline, his sister a struggling single mother and his best friend the lead singer of a terrible heavy metal band. But a meet- cute in the dairy aisle with an old childhood friend might just give him a reason to stick around. A truly independent film (in part crowd-funded) and a runaway box office success in Costa Rica, it was named the Best International Feature Film at the 2011 New York Latino Film Festival.
DIR/SCR Hernan Jimenez; PROD Manuel Granda. Costa Rica, 2011, color, 95 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
