COUSINHOOD is an American-style bromantic comedy with an added dash of Spanish cojones. It's the story of three party dudes, loyal cousins who have each other's backs. When thirtysomething Diego is left standing at the altar, macho Julian has a remedy for his broken heart. They begin by drowning their sorrows and dragging their cousin José Miguel to the seaside town where they grew up. A boozy summer festival is in full swing, where they revel with childhood friends and begin reconnecting with local traditions. Diego rediscovers his attraction to lovely Martina, who lives in his former house. Julian finds that his old friend is now the town drunk and the father of a sultry prostitute. José Miguel, a hypochondriac perpetually out of his comfort zone, bonds with Martina's young son over their mutual fears. As a new day dawns for these endearing buffoons, it looks like they might be growing up in spite of themselves. (In Spanish with subtitles) –B.B.
