Mexico’s highest grossing film ever, “We Are the Nobles” hit a nerve with its farcical tale of a wealthy widower who concocts an elaborate scheme to convince his spoiled, 20-something children that all the money is lost. Plunged into poverty, they are forced to enter alien territory: the world of work. 108 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
“‘We Are the Nobles’… inflicts blunt trauma on any suggestion that Mexico may soon emerge as a middle-class country.” — The New York Times
