About the Movie
Trapped in the nervous desperation of Havana, Raul dreams of escaping to Miami. When accused of assault, his only option is to flee. He begs his best friend, Elio, to abandon everything and help him reach the forbidden land 90 miles across the ocean. Elio’s commitment is tested when he is torn between helping Raul escape and protecting his twin sister, Lila. Brimming with the nervous energy of Havana’s restless youth in the crumbling sun-bleached capital, Una Noche follows one sweltering day, full of hope and fraught with tension, that burns to a shocking climax.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Una Noche" surges with vitality so palpable that, for its duration, you feel as if you were living in the skins of characters often photographed in such extreme close-up that they seem to be breathing in your face.
Fresh: A compelling portrait of a population decrement via the Florida Straits.
Fresh: This urban slice-of-life becomes a tale of arguing kids, each touchingly preoccupied with his or her own sexual identity, all at odds with the elements themselves.
Rotten: Graced with an appealing soundtrack and actors who put fierce heart into every gesture, the movie never achieves the emotional impact desired.
This movie blew my mind!
This is the best movie of the year. The director is amazing. The acting is fantastic. It's authentic and I was taken back to Cuba. Thank you for this movie.
This movie was the best film I have seen all year!!
Saw this in NYC theater. Like City of God it takes you to an other world. A cuba not seen on film until now. Riveting from start to finish!
Una película verdaderamente genuina que muestra la triste realidad de la gran mayoría de los cubanos que viven en la isla. En mi opinión los actores a pesar de ser novatos, actuaron muy bien. Se la recomiendo a todos!
