Foreign Films presents...
WILD TALES
Made up of six stories, Wild Tales is an entertaining and jaw-dropping film about people crossing the line into madness when faced with perceived injustice. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past, and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to lose control and cross the line that divides civilization and barbarism.
122 minutes / Rated R
This film is in Spanish with English subtitles.
