The film's been one of the few unqualified hits of Cannes this year, picking up sensational reviews, including our own, and had it featured in competition, might even be a front-runner for the Palme D'Or. While we wait for any distribution news on the project, we're pleased to debut a pair of exclusive images from the film, and you can read a synopsis below. All being well, we'll hear word on worldwide releases for the film before too long.
When Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, facing international pressure, calls for a referendum on his presidency in 1988, opposition leaders persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. With scant resources and constant scrutiny by the despot's watchmen, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and free their country from oppression.
