José, a young and hardworking bicycle delivery worker, is the captain of his soccer team in Sunset Park. When the team makes it to the finals, he and his teammates are thrilled. But his boss throws a wrench into the celebration when he tells José he has to work on Sunday, the day of the match.

Our take

Winner of the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award, Jim McKay’s En el Séptimo Día is a feat of humane filmmaking. Approaching its non-professional actors with great restraint, this poignant story about undocumented immigrants and food service workers in America is quiet, but packs a heavy punch.
