Movie Info

Set in Huilotepec, a community in the Mexican countryside, Summer of Goliath revolves around three characters: Teresa, who embarks on a mission to determine why her husband has suddenly abandoned her; her son Gabino, who is in the military and spends his time conducting car searches, as well as intimidating the locals, with his fellow soldier Alberto; and 16-year-old Oscar - nicknamed Goliath - who is socially outcast because of a rumor that he killed his girlfriend. Dominated by Teresa's wanderings and her interactions with the town's inhabitants, Summer of Goliath hauntingly depicts a community suffering from the effects of lost loved ones, broken promises, disconnection, and eternal longing. -- (C) Anthology

Pereda has proven adept at paying tributes and trying on parental wardrobes; one can only imagine what a heavy hitter he'll be once he finds his own voice and something to say with it.

Challenging, unsettling little movie doesn't quite come together.

Film Journal International

There's very little of a concise plot to be found here, but the overall result is invigorating and even haunting, especially in its final moments.
