Following the death of his son, Jorge travels from conservative Bolivia to NYC to confront Sebastian, who was his son’s lover. While he struggles to accept the life of his son, Sebastian begins to write a play that celebrates his deceased lover.
Tu Me Manques was the official selection for the Best International Feature Film in the 2019 Academy Awards. Now, it’s available in America.
The title, which means I Miss You, tells the story of Gabriel’s life intercut with the idealized version of his life within Sebastian’s play. Meanwhile, we follow Jorge as he searches New York City to try and find something to remember of his son.
Gabriel is played by several actors in this — within the real life of the movie and the play within it — and his suicide hangs over the future of every person that remains. This is an emotional watch but one worth viewing.
Tu Me Manques is available on demand and on DVD from Dark Star Pictures. You can learn more on the official Facebook page.
