ANGELIKA’S NOTE

From Juan José Campanella, the director of the Oscar Award-winning THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES, comes THE WEASELS' TALE, a comedic thriller that stars a bumper crop of well-known older Argentine actors. The film is the story of a group of four long-time friends, including a used-to-be-famous actress, her now disabled husband and an actor as well, who she eclipsed, and the sharp-tongued screenwriter and director of her greatest hits. Their coexistence is menaced by a young couple who, feigning to be lost, slowly insinuate themselves into their lives. It’s SUNSET BOULEVARD meets THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, with a Latin twist. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.
