"Sexy, sunny, and sweet-natured, this lovely animation by filmmaker Fernando Trueba and artist and designer Javier Mariscal is a 1940s love story with all the brassy passion of a Barry Manilow number, set in the nightclubs of Havana and New York." Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian.

An Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature, Chico & Rita is an artfully made romantic drama that captures the hearts and imaginations of its audience through its storytelling as much as its animation.

94 minutes; Spanish, with English subtitles

Consistently recognized by strangers, the visitors question their very selves as the turmoil escalates. Director Dominic Cooke stages this furiously paced comedy in a contemporary world.
