Much Ado About Nothing (2016)

Vicente, a college student on summer vacation, spends his days relaxing at the family beach house, drinking and flirting. Out partying one night, he piles into a car with new friends and winds up in a deadly hit-and-run accident. With his memory hazy and the others offering conflicting accounts, Vicente finds himself entangled in a criminal case and a corrupt system that closes ranks around the actual driver, the son of a prominent politician.

To Kill a Man

Jorge is a tranquil, middle-class family man whose neighborhood has become overrun by a fringe class of street thugs. His comparatively fortunate existence makes him the target of their intimidation one night, and a hulking outlaw robs him of his insulin needle. Jorge’s teenage son boldly tries to stand up for his father, which only serves to unleash the bully’s terrorizing reign of threats upon the family. Jorge and his wife, Martha, seek protection from the legal system but are subjected to civic drones and bureaucratic procedure, so they remain vulnerable. As Jorge’s family suffers from fear and humiliating anguish, the situation paints him as a deficient patriarch—until he’s cornered into defending what’s his.
