Synopsis

Camila, a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York to attend an artistic residency to develop a Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Upon her arrival, she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards.

Our take

Matías Piñeiro’s glorious Hermia & Helena intersects Shakespeare’s writing with the excitement of modern life. His first film in the U.S., this charming comedy captures the youthful zeal of New York, and plays creatively with form and time to craft an imaginative delight.
