The Playlist staff like bicker and fight amongst are ourselves about the merits of whatever movie might be in theaters or coming up soon, but one movie that was met with rare collective praise is Lucy Malloy's "Una Noche." Hitting the festival circuit in a big way through 2012, most of us caught up with it at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was easily the highlight of that year. Now, after a long, long wait, it's finally coming to cinemas and a brand new trailer has arrived.

Una Noche

The Playlist staff like bicker and fight amongst ourselves about the merits of whatever movie might be in theaters or coming up soon, but one movie that was met with rare collective praise is Lucy Mulloy's "Una Noche." Hitting the festival circuit in a big way through 2012, most of us caught up with it at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was easily the highlight of that year. Now, after a long, long wait, it's finally coming to cinemas and a brand new trailer has arrived.

Now boasting the approval of Spike Lee, "Una Noche" presents the story of three Cuban teenagers (Dariel Arrechaga, Anailin de la Rua de la Torre, and Javier Nunez Florian) who eye Miami as place to give them a fighting chance against poverty, while weighing what the journey could mean to each of them personally. It's a film that was met with the rave reviews almost across the board, with our own Gabe Toro (who is quoted in the trailer too) calling it "funny, heartfelt, naughty and nice."

Taking home Best Actor, Best Cinematography and Best New Narrative Director at Tribeca, a second place Teddy prize in Berlin and more statues from fests in Athens, Brazil, Ft. Lauderdale, India, Stockholm and more, this is one to track down. "Una Noche" opens on August 23rd and you can read our interview with the director right here.
