Mystery, wackily off-base accusations of murder, and romantic missteps provide abundant black humor in this offbeat comedy. A need to save face at any cost overwhelms Elvira (Suárez, who began her career in Chicago with Teatro Vista), a harried wife and mother, when her husband of twelve years takes off on a nocturnal cigarette run and never returns, leaving her with two bawling kids. Juggling contradictory fibs to family, friends, and the born-again babysitter neighbor, Elvira embarks on a series of adventures that include working as a funeral home’s hired mourner and taking a whirl as a cougar to a hot young florist, in the course of tracking her wayward spouse to Acapulco. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital widescreen. (BS)
