Spanish-Language Sundance Hit MADRID, 1987 Coming to DVD, 2/26
Breaking Glass Pictures and Efish Entertainment are proud to announce the February 26 DVD release of MADRID, 1987 (SRP $24.99). The film was an official selection at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
On a hot summer day in a vacant Madrid, Miguel (José Sacristán), a feared and respected journalist, sets up a meeting in a café with Ángela (María Valverde), a young journalism student. He takes her to a friend's studio. His intentions are clearly sexual; hers are less clear. Chance events force them together for more time than they would have chosen, locked in a bathroom, naked, without the possibility of escape.
Removed from the outside world, the pair, who represent polarized generations, are pitted in an unevenly matched duel involving age, intellect, ambition and experience. The political and social context of the period provides the background to the power shifts that continually take place between them over twenty-four hours.

Hailed by the Hollywood Reporter as "an engrossing two-hander combining the smart-talk microcosm of My Dinner With Andre and the sexual dynamics of a Philip Roth novel, David Trueba's Madrid, 1987 is more Universal than its title suggests and holds a strong art house appeal." Directed by David Trueba, the film enjoyed theatrical runs in Los Angeles and New York during October.
