The Cinema Hold Up
February 8th 2016 | Simply Media | DVD
Looking for excitement and purpose, four bored teenagers turn to crime in this gritty Mexican drama. When one suggests that they plan a robbery of the local cinema, all four are up for the challenge, but in turn jeopardising the one sure thing they have in life, their friendship.
An explosive dramatic comedy, The Cinema Hold Up (Alsalto Al Cine) is a lively, authentic, and excellently observed portrait of Mexico’s youth culture. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews and is the first feature from director Iria Gómez Concheiro (Women Interrupted).
