The Fish Child (92 mins)
Lala, a teenager from an exclusive Buenos Aires suburb, dreams of escaping to Paraguay with her family’s impoverished maid, but when the pair put the plan into action events spiral out of control. Celebrated Argentine director Lucía Puenzo’s follow-up to her extraordinary debut XXY is a gripping tale of forbidden lesbian romance and a crime heist gone awry, with a magical-realist flourish.
