“Pitiless and pitch-perfect, an existential tour-de-force with shades of Camus’s 'The Outsider'. Tim Roth is a wonderfully relaxed sociopath in Venice’s funniest film.” - The Guardian

From the outside, it would appear that Neil Bennett (Tim Roth), a wealthy Briton vacationing with loved ones at a luxury resort in Acapulco, wants for nothing. Until, that is, a single phone call shatters Neil’s idyll: there’s been a death in the family, and he, his sister Allison (Charlotte Gainsbourg), and the kids must return to London immediately. 

At the airport, Neil pretends to have forgotten his passport at the resort. He insists the others go ahead; he’ll catch the next flight. Instead, Neil checks into a budget hotel, drinks beer at the beach, meets a beautiful local named Berenice, and begins concocting reasons to delay his return home. What is Neil up to? How long can he linger abroad while his family grieves and contends with legal matters? And what if things go from bad to worse? 

A riveting and incisive study of class disparity and familial strife from Mexican writer-director Michel Franco’s (New OrderAfter Lucia).
