Winner of multiple awards, including the Queer Lion from the 75th Annual Venice Film Festival, José is a gripping, layered and beautifully honest story about one working-class young man’s struggle to find himself. Made in the neorealist filmmaking tradition, the film is a nuanced and vivid look at being gay in Central America.
Reviews
“Beautiful…stars the excellent Enrique Salanic.”-The New York Times

“With every kiss on the neck or touch of the hand, Cheng inserts muted sensuality to the love story.” – The Wrap

“A near-perfectly-observed character study with a vivid and novel sense of place.”- Roger Moore Movie Nation

“While the film’s characters are all realized by finely tuned performances, special mention must be made of Salanic for his complex and truly superb work as José.”- RogerEbert.com

“A touching debut…sexually frank in an honest, fresh fashion.”- Screen Daily

“Raw and authentic.” – Remezcla
