Sony Pictures Classic has decided to give us a treat to end this week by releasing the first trailer for I Carry You With Me.
The American-Mexican Spanish-language drama film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival way back in January. It took home the audience and innovator awards at the festival, and many people believe it has a chance to win Best International Feature at the Oscars.
Written by Ewing and Alan Page Arriaga, the movie tells the story of young, aspiring chef Iván (played remarkably by Armando Espitia), who works at a restaurant and dreams of being able to cook while supporting the mother of his child. After meeting a teacher named Gerardo (Christian Vazquez), who is an out gay man, the two develop an instant connection. This love causes Iván to make the dangerous and perilous journey to cross the border to find a life that can help him achieve his culinary dreams, his forbidden love and his chance at fatherhood.
Sony Pictures Classic acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film shortly after its festival run earlier this year.
It’s set to be released inside theaters on January 8, 2021. Check out the trailer below…
