Reuniting Y Tu Mam√° También stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, this moving comedy follows the rivalry of two brothers in the world of professional soccer.

After growing up on a banana plantation with an abusive stepfather, the brothers’ natural gifts are soon spotted by a soccer scout. Playing for different teams in Mexico City, the brothers are soon nicknamed Rudo (rough) and Cursi (corny).

Director Carlos Cuar√≥n is brother of Alfonso Cuar√≥n (Children of Men, Y Tu Mam√° También), and he also co-wrote Y Tu Mam√° También. His debut film charts the brother’s rise and fall as they juggle fame, family and love in this acclaimed snapshot of modern life in Mexico.
