Well into their 30s, Juan (Gael García Bernal) and Benjamin (Leonardo Ortizgris) can’t seem to finish veterinary school or manage to leave their parents’ homes. On a fateful Christmas Eve in 1985, Juan persuades Benjamin it’s finally time for them to distinguish themselves by executing the most infamous heist of cultural artifacts in Mexican history: looting the National Anthropology Museum. But once you have 150 priceless Mayan artifacts, what do you do with them? Inspired by true events, this sardonic and suspenseful cautionary tale plays like a fable about human folly. With Alfredo Castro, Simon Russell Beale. In Spanish with English subtitles. Writers: Manuel Alcalá, Alonso Ruizpalacios. Director: Alonso Ruizpalacios. (Mexico 2018) 128 min.
