Don’t Blame the Kid (¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño?)
Gustavo Loza (2016, Mexico), Netflix
A lighthearted comedy about a beautiful, accomplished young woman who gets pregnant after a drunken night with a hapless man. She is determined to get married and raise the baby and get married, despite the fact that she has nothing in common with the father. Mexico’s answer to Knocked Up.
Our Last Tango (Un tango más)
German Kral (2015, Argentina/Germany/Italy), Netflix
María Nieves and Juan Carlos Copes are the most famous tango dancers of all time and have been dancing together since she was 14 and he was 17. Over five decades, they have lived an intense romance that included love and hate both on the dance floor and off. Now in their 80s, they tell their story in this moving documentary that features beautiful new tango choreography based on their story.
Spanish Affair (Ocho apellidos vascos)
This rom-com centers around a very Spanish mistaken identity tale–a young Andalusian man who has never left Seville pretends to be Basque in order to win the heart of a lovely young Basque woman. He follows her to the Basque country, and a fun romp about cultural clashes ensues. Perfect for lovers of Spain who love the variety of its regions.
