NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

Tomas is an introverted teenager with an overbearing mother, who nags him about taking his anti-psychotic meds and studying for an upcoming important exam. If that wasn’t stressful enough, Tomas is also haunted by a violent and painful childhood memory, which causes him deep distress. To cope, he learns everything he can about the moon, and he dreams of one day visiting the luminous satellite. When Tomas rebels and stops taking his pills, this escapist daydream becomes a full-blown fascination that overtakes his life—and threatens to upend his family’s stability. Can his sassy neighbor Iris, whose kindness coaxes him out of his shell, bring him back down to earth? Or will he remain unmoored from his earthly life for good? A TRIP TO THE MOON uses well-placed moments of magical realism to illustrate how Tomas attempts to wrest control over his mental anguish. But the film is also a realistic, sympathetic portrayal of the disconnection and confusion all adolescents face as they navigate burgeoning adulthood. (In Spanish with subtitles) —A.Z.
