IVÁN'S DREAM [El sueño de iván]
When a charity soccer match is announced between the world's best players and a team made up of the world's most talented kids, 11-year-old Iván defies the odds and makes the team. But he'll have to face more than just his much taller opponents, as the bully with designs on Iván's girlfriend has been chosen for the team as well. Their decorated Mexican coach, recent Oscar nominee Demián Bichir (A BETTER LIFE), has his work cut out for him in turning a motley crew of kids into a real team. A charming tale of friendship, sportsmanship and young love, this is a perfect film for the whole family.
