Sundown starring Tim Roth
A beautiful Acapulco vacation may be a wonderful idea for many families. In Sundown, a vacation cut short may prove to be more stressful than being a relaxing getaway for a family.
The film stars Tim Roth (Rob Roy, The Hateful Eight), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia, Nymphomaniac Vol. I & II), Iazua Larios (Apocalypto, Keeper of the Realm), Henry Goodman (Taking Woodstock, Private Parts), Albertine Kotting McMillan (A Very British Scandal), and Samuel Bottomley (Ghost Stories, Tyrannosaur). Michel Franco directed and wrote the film.
Here is the official synopsis:
Neil and Alice Bennett (Tim Roth, Charlotte Gainsbourg) are the core of a wealthy family on vacation in Mexico with younger members Colin and Alex (Samuel Bottomley, Albertine Kotting McMillan) until a distant emergency cuts their trip short. When one relative disrupts the family’s tight-knit order, simmering tensions rise to the fore in this suspenseful jolt from writer/director Michel Franco.

This is an anticipated film after last year’s New Order from Michel Franco that explored class struggles in Mexico that led to violence. Sometimes a vacation spot in Acapulco seems innocent enough, but Franco is a masterful storyteller that puts tension and stress into the characters.
As with Franco’s previous film, he will probably explore the idea between life and death with a surprise turn of violence. Also, be prepared to be mesmerized with cinematography.
Sundown is in select theaters in Los Angeles and New York on January 28.
