Though a film relying on loyal fans of its filmmakers to fill seats isn’t the most reassuring thing, Desierto does appear to have a lot of redeeming qualities for itself. From Jose and Alfonso Cuaron, it tells the story of Mexican migrants entering the US south west, who must evade capture from bounty hunter dude with a rifle and bad ass dog.
Desierto hits UK cinemas from 4th March 2016.
From Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón, the acclaimed filmmakers of Gravity, comes a unique, modern vision of terror. Desierto is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries and Y Tu Mamá También) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen).What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.
