From Juan José Campanella, the director of the Oscar Award-winning THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES, comes THE WEASEL’S TALE, a comedic thriller starring a bumper crop of well-known older Argentine actors.
The film is the story of a group of four long-time friends, including a used-to-be-famous actress, her now disabled actor husband, her favorite director, and the writer of her greatest hits. They are retired from the movie business, forming an unusual family in a decaying mansion in the countryside outside of Buenos Aires. Their coexistence is menaced by a young couple who, feigning to be lost, slowly insinuate themselves into their lives. It’s Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a Latin twist!
Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.
