You’re Killing Me Susana (Me Estás Matando Susana)
, a romantic comedy from Mexico starring Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle, Neruda
), will begin its U.S. theatrical run on February 17, 2017 in Los Angeles and New York and expanding thereafter to 10 additional cities.
Hola Mexico Distribution will release the film in the US, following its 2016 premieres at the Guadalajara International, Chicago International and Mill Valley Film Festivals and its theatrical run in Mexico this past August.
Produced and directed by Roberto Sneider (Tear This Heart Out
) from a screenplay by Luis Cámara and Sneider based on the novel Deserted Cities (Ciudades Desiertas
) by José Agustín, the film co-stars Verónica Echegui, Ashley Grace, Jadyn Wong, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson and Adam Hurtig.
Samuel Douek, president of Hola Mexico Distribution, said, “We believe U.S. audiences who are fans of Gael from such films as The Motorcycle Diaries, Babel
and more recently his TV series Mozart in the Jungle
will love him in You’re Killing Me Susana (Me Estás Matando Susana), where he’s a charming rogue in the tradition of Hugh Grant in Bridget Jones’s Diary and About a Boy. It’s a funny and entertaining date movie for adult filmgoers.”
