U.S. Theatrical Release of TALES OF AN IMMORAL COUPLE

Hola Mexico Distribution has announced the U.S. theatrical release of the screwball comedy Tales of an Immoral Couple (La vida inmoral de la pareja ideal), the fifth feature film by writer-director Manolo Caro. The film opens Friday, August 25 in screens across the country including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and San Diego, among other cities. This marks the first U.S. theatrical distribution by the young yet accomplished Mexican film and theater director, whose deft comedies have enjoyed significant box office success at home, making him the only filmmaker in Mexico to have scored a top ten highest-grossing movie in the past three consecutive years.  

Tales of an Immoral Couple centers on Lucio and Martina, two former lovers whose passionate romance began while attending a strict Catholic high school in Mexico. Twenty-five five years later, they unexpectedly run into each other in the city of San Miguel de Allende and despite still sharing an undiminished love for one another they both pretend to be in happy marriages––even if it’s all lies. As they try to maintain their facades, a comedy of errors ensues that reveals the true reasons why the couple ended up separating in the first place.    

Emmy-nominated actress and Caro regular Cecilia Suárez plays the role of Martina, while Manuel García Rulfo (The Magnificent Seven and the upcoming Soldado) plays the role of Lucio. They are joined by a cast of established as well as up-and-coming actors including Sebastián Aguirre (Güeros and A Monster with a Thousand Heads), Andrés Almeida (You’re Killing Me Susana and Y Tu Mamá También), and Spain’s Paz Vega (Lucía and Sex, and Almodóvar’s Talk to Her and I’m So Excited). 

Shot on location in Mexico’s picturesque San Miguel de Allende, Tales of an Immoral Couple premiered on Mexican screens in November of last year and became one of the top-grossing Mexican films of 2016. With a charming vivacity and a talented cast with impeccable comedic timing, the film offers U.S. audiences a great introduction to Caro, a director who deftly combines his artistry with comedy.
