Y Tu Mama Tambien

Aka "And Your Mother Too". A raunchy, yet emotionally layered and keenly observed coming-of-age tale in which two Mexican teens - wealthy Tenoch and working-class Julio - bid their girlfriends goodbye for a European trip and set out on a summer of sex, drugs and rock and roll. At a wedding party they meet Luisa, a striking woman 10 years their senior and fed up with her adulterous husband. She joins them on a road trip to a beach resort in which the journey becomes one towards maturity, and a tender bond develops between the three characters who are faced with a few home-truths.
