Synopsis

In her second feature after Semana Santa (2015), Alejandra Márquez Abella presents this gorgeously mounted and beautifully played feature. Inspired by Guadalupe Loaeza’s satirical writings on some of the country’s richest, yet in many ways, least powerful citizens, The Good Girls is at once a scathing and glamourous depiction of the wives of upper-class men in 1982 Mexico.

Sofia (a breathtaking Ilse Salas, Güeros) lives in the prestigious Las Lomas neighbourhood where life is picture perfect and her biggest dream is to have Julio Iglesias sing at one of her shindigs. While she occasionally has to put up with the inconveniences of her husband Fernando (Flavio Medina) and their three children, Sofia’s days are for the most part filled to the brim with constant gossiping, luxury shopping and long lunches at the racquet club with the other “Real Housewives of Mexico City”. However, her cushy routine might be in for a rude awakening as the Mexican economy inches towards a debt crisis, and cracks slowly start to appear in Sofia’s perfect world.

Reviews

  • "A nice piece of social and cultural criticism, and Salas makes for a formidably icy matron. It's a cool, contained effort." - Screendaily
