Rated PG-13 · 100 minutes · 2007

Drama
Winner of the audience prize at the 2006 Toronto film festival, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde's first feature may have more heart than head, but it's also just as interesting for what it leaves out of its romantic story as for what it retains. A waitress (Tammy Blanchard) at a Manhattan Mexican restaurant gets fired for coming in late after discovering that she's pregnant. The manager's brother (Eduardo Verastegui), who works there as chef, is so angry that he quits on the spot and spends the rest of the day with his new friend, taking her to meet his parents. We never learn who's the father of the waitress's child, but we do get some backstories about both characters, especially the chef (who used to be a soccer star and, unlike the waitress, is part Mexican), and these people -- actors as well as characters -- are engaging enough to suspend most of our questions (91 min., 2006).
