Winner of the Independent Spirit Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and named the same by the National Society of Film Critics, New York Film Critics’ Circle, LA Film Critics’ Association and such groups in Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, Florida, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Santa Fe. In Mexico, two teenage boys and an attractive older woman embark on a road trip and learn a thing or two about life, friendship, sex, and each other. The eroticism in Cuaron's road movie (which broke all box-office records in Mexico) is the real deal: tactile, sexy, psychologically charged. It's not there to shock or provoke giggles--this is no Hollywood teen comedy--but to illuminate these complex, poignant and lost characters… The movie has an emotional kick that lingers like a primal memory. When the year is over, Cuaron's film will be remembered as one of 2002's finest.

Critics Consensus: A road movie that's not only sexy, but intelligent as well.
Bittersweet road-trip movie with graphic sex, language.
