Chile’s official entry for Oscar consideration, as well as the film featured at Mill Valley Film Festival’s Spotlight on Gael García Bernal, this absorbing cat-and-mouse tale from filmmaker Pablo Larraín (whose Jackie is also in current release) combines historical fact with fanciful invention. In 1948 the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) and his wife Delia (Mercedes Morán) go underground when the country’s president outlaws communism, instantly turning the celebrated artist into a fugitive. An ambitious police inspector (Gael García Bernal) hopes to create a name for himself by capturing this prestigious prey, and Neruda uses the occasion to toy with his pursuer. Rated R. In Spanish and French with English subtitles. Writer: Guillermo Calderón. Director: Pablo Larraín. (Chile 2016) 108 min.
