Hernan Jiménez's ABOUT US Is Costa Rica's Oscar Hopeful

Costa Rica became the last Latin American country to select an Oscar candidate for the foreign  language film competition, and it has chosen the romantic comedy Entonces nosotros / About Us by Hernán Jiménez as its contender.

Starring Jiménez himself as Diego, a hopeless romantic desperately trying to salvage his relationship with long time girlfriend Sofía (played by Argentine actress, Noelia Castaño), plans a beach getaway clear the air, and propose to her. But a chance encounter with Sofía's old friend Malena will cast doubts on their relationship, and his skewed understanding of love, quickly turning a perfect weekend in paradise into Diego's worst nightmare.

About Us becomes the fifth Costa Rican Oscar contender, since the Central American country started submitting candidates in 2005.
