The Unexpected Life

Ongoing

With director Jorge Torregrossa in person

Presented by the Instituto Cervantes

Spain. Dir. Jorge Torregrossa. 2014, 107 mins. With Javier Cámara, Raúl Arévalo, Tammy Blanchard. One of Spain’s most esteemed actors, Javier Cámara (Pedro Almodóvar’s Talk to Her and Bad Education) delivers a winning performance in this bittersweet romantic comedy. He stars as a Spanish ex-pat trying to make it as an actor in New York City. When his more conventional cousin arrives for a visit, the pair initially seem to have little in common. But as they bond over their shared Spanish heritage, each makes surprising discoveries about life and love. A charming valentine to New York City, The Unexpected Life offers wise and witty insights into what it means to be a foreigner in a new country.
