A GUN IN EACH HAND [Una pistola en cada mano]
The misadventures of eight fortysomething men on the verge of a nervous breakdown collide in this witty battle of the sexes from Catalan filmmaker Cesc Gay. Javier Cámara (TALK TO HER, I'M SO EXCITED!) tries to woo back the ex-wife he divorced for another woman; Candela Peña (ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER) gleefully preys on the inappropriate advances of coworker Eduardo Noriega (THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE); and Ricardo Darín (THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES) is slow to catch on that his wife is having an affair. With a fresh and funny script by Gay, each actor relishes the chance to subvert expectations and challenge gender roles. Best Supporting Actress (Peña), 2013 Goya Awards; Jury Prize for Best Performance, 2013 Miami Film Festival. Official Selection, 2012 Rome, 2013 Seattle Film Festivals.
