Making its world premiere at the upcoming Los Angeles Film Festival next month – June 10 through June 18 – Luiz Guzmánm, Edgar Garcia, Rosario Dawson, Rosie Perez, Alice Taglioni, Miriam Shor, and Frederic Anscombre star in the dramedy “Puerto Ricans in Paris.”
Shot last year, the film (a USA/France/Czech Republic co-production) is directed by Ian Edelman (HBO’s “How to Make It in America”), with a story that follows 2 detectives working in NYPD’s Luxury Goods Recovery Unit, who are responsible for taking down bootleggers selling knockoff consumer items. The 2 cops are played not by Dawson and Perez (as some hoped), but by Luiz Guzmán and Edgar Garcia, a series regular on “How to Make It in America.” The pair is sent to Paris to help a French designer recover a bag that is of some significance, from her latest line.
Dawson and Perez play the girlfriends.
