En la frágil sencillez del nuevo texto literario de David Trueba se esconde una hermosa lírica sobre la vida en la adolescencia. Por Ramón Rozas. Leer más
Spanish helmer Fernando Trueba took home the 1993 foreign-language film Oscar for his period dramedy “Belle Epoque.” More than two decades later, his younger brother, David, is hoping to bring a second Oscar into the family with his Beatles-themed road movie “Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed.”
Trueba, the youngest of eight siblings, is no rookie at the foreign-lingo film Oscar game. His 2003 drama “Soldiers of Salamina” repped Spain in the category, but didn’t get nominated.
He might have a better chance this time. “Living Is Easy” is tipped to be among the 15 favorites out of the record 83 entries in the Academy’s foreign-language film race. Outsider Pictures released it in the U.S. in the summer when it took in nearly $13,000.
