READ MORE: Breaking Glass Pictures Acquires Spanish Dark Comedy ‘My Big Night’
After premiering to considerable acclaim at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, “My Big Night,” which chronicles the chaos and shenanigans that arise behind the scenes of a New Years Eve television special, has been referred to by many as Álex de la Iglesia’s finest film in years.
The official synopsis reads: “It’s only October, but the network’s annual black-tie New Year’s Eve spectacular has already been in production for a grueling week and a half, and setbacks continue to accumulate. A falling crane has just taken out an extra, and the show’s hosts are at each other’s throats. Oversexed pop sensation Adán (Mario Casas) discovers he’s been duped by a semen thief, while legendary divo Alphonso (real-life singer Raphael) is stalked by an armed and unstable would-be songwriter (Jaime Ordóñez), who’s disgruntled after years of rejection.”
The film’s poster seemingly teases all of the characters who partake in the hilarious madness of the “big night.” The film is still traveling the festival circuit and is slated to hit theaters in April.
