Danny Glover, Maya Rudolph, Jose Maria Yazpik, Joel Murray / Fiction / English, Spanish
A road trip with a pig... and a love letter to Mexico.
Danny Glover is in shamblingly great form as Ambrose, a boozy hog farmer whose business has collapsed and so heads off with his prize giant pig Howard (who happens to be genetically valuable) in the back of his van to sell it to an old colleague in Mexico. When things go wrong, Eunice (Maya Rudolph), the daughter he rarely sees, follows him to Jalisco, to deal with Ambrose’s illness and also a rare large hog. Unsentimentally directed by Diego Luna, it is a bittersweet road trip through a striking landscape. [12A]
