The Good Girls (Las niñas bien)


Surrounded by extravagant luxury, Sofía de Garay (Ilse Salas) lives in a dreamlike cloud of opulence in 1980s Mexico City. Her days are filled with lavish soirees, designer dresses, country-club tennis matches, and all the pleasures reserved for the upper crust.

In this world, appearances are everything and friendships are only as strong as your financial status. However, when Mexico's 1982 economic crisis hits her husband's business hard, the elegant lifestyle Sofia is accustomed to falls to pieces right before her eyes. Soon, her arrogance turns into desperation, as she is forced to confront her new reality.

It's only in her infatuation with Spanish singer Julio Iglesias that Sofia finds solace from the unbearable turmoil. Director Alejandra Márquez Abella's film is a sumptuous examination of the privileged few trapped in their artificial microcosm of hypocrisy, superficiality, and immense loneliness.
