Memories of My Father
Not Rated
136 minutes | 
The life of Héctor Abad Gómez, one of Colombia’s most beloved national figures, is beautifully dramatized by Fernando Trueba, the director of Oscar-winning Belle Epoque. Almodóvar regular Javier Cámara plays Gómez in this adaptation of his son’s Héctor Abad Faciolince richly evocative memoir. It recounts life in the turbulent South American country in the 1970s and 1980s, charting how the city of Medellín’s descent into corruption transformed the halcyon days of Héctor’s youth as his father became an increasingly outspoken critic of the government.
