Movie Info

Marcos and his family work as ranch hands. While his father and brother handle the heavier tasks, Marcos stays home close to his mother. Each one has their future laid out before them, yet Marcos bides his time waiting for Carnival, the one moment when he can let his true self out to shine. The sudden death of his father leaves the family in a very vulnerable situation. The ranch owner hounds them to go away, while Marcos's mother pressures him to take over the work in the fields. Nicknamed Marilyn by the other teenagers in town, Marcos is a target for desire and discrimination. And then one Carnival night he is raped.

  • "Marilyn" isn't another take on Hollywood's iconic bombshell but rather a gripping, sensitive coming-of-age drama set in Argentina.

  • The integration of Western motifs with a teenager's hesitant lurch toward self-realization is deftly achieved in Martín Rodríguez Redondo's feature debut, "Marilyn."

  • It's depressing as hell...But the performances and the filmmaking involved raise the story and make it worth it.

  • What is your breaking point?

  • This quietly observational drama makes some strong comments about the grip of machismo in Latin America. The depiction is complex and textured.

    May 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There are many stories about gay trauma that feel like emotional abuse - Martín Rodríguez Redondo refrains from the horror as much as he can within a story like this, making the character study all the richer as a result.
