Odd friendships come from unusual places.
In a lovable black comedy, Papi Chulo is a desire to find connection across racial and socio-economic lines.
The film stars Matt Bomer and Alejandro Patino. It is directed and written by John Butler.
Here’s the synopsis:
Cast adrift in Los Angeles, Sean – a lonely TV weatherman – drives past a middle-aged Latino migrant worker standing outside a hardware store looking for work. He decides to hire this kind-looking man –to be his friend. Sean is young, gay and white. Earnesto is portly, straight and married. Despite having nothing in common and a language barrier, they build sort of friendship – until Sean becomes consumed with a deeper obsessive need.
