It's the late 1950s, and thirty-something best friends Miguel (Raúl Arévalo, also in this year’s The Plan) and Antonio (Juan Diego Botto) swap their daily routines in Madrid for what they hope will be the adventure of a lifetime as they holiday together in Ibiza.
Embracing the free-spirited lifestyle of their temporary home, they frolic with their unconventional and glamourous new friends. But when Miguel falls in love with the sophisticated, modern-living French woman Odette (Stéphane Caillard), he soon discovers that not everything is as perfect on their dream holiday as it first appeared.
Adapted from award-winning Spanish writer Rafael Azcona's 2006 novel of the same name, Víctor García León paints an alluring portrait of the famous Mediterranean party island and its motley group of holiday makers, bringing to life the wild world of 1950’s Ibiza in all its dazzling heights and hidden lows.
The electricity between lead actors Raúl Arévalo and Juan Diego Botto lies at the heart of The Europeans, solidifying their place as two of Spain's most exciting and acclaimed actors.
