In modern-day Tijuana, Laura, a slender and beautiful girl, sneaks away from her modest family home to enter a beauty contest with her best friend Suzu. They make the cut, but when they go out to a club to celebrate they’re caught in the crossfire between rival drug cartels. Laura ends up in the clutches of a quietly menacing druglord named Lino, who forces her to work for him as a driver. In exchange he pulls enough strings to get her the crown of Miss Baja California. This new feature from Gerardo Naranjo (I’m Gonna Explode) is executed with style and restraint that lifts it far beyond the typical crime thriller. Much of the film is shot in long single takes, capturing the raw violence and intensity of a series of masterfully choreographed action scenes. Yet Naranjo maintains an eye for irony and the nuances of character; Stephanie Sigman as Laura and Noe Hernandez as Lino turn in sensitive and layered performances. One of the most acclaimed films from the Cannes Film Festival.
