LOS ANGELES PREMIERE! (not expected to open at the Laemmle and in NY until fall or 2015)
Inspired by a true story.
Winner of 6 Goya Awards, 2014 (the Spanish Oscars), including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (David Trueba), Best Actor (Javier Camara), Best Actress (Natalia Molina) and Best Original Score (Pat Metheny).
It is 1966 in Albacete, Spain. English teacher and die-hard Beatles fan Antonio decides to go on a road trip to Almería in the hope of meeting John Lennon, who is shooting a film there. On the way he picks up two young runaways and the trio form an unlikely bond to follow their dreams and find themselves.
” LIVING IS EASY WITH EYES CLOSED is a picaresque Spanish road-trip comedy with subtexts [of] a Spain where everyone who was “different” lived in fear, where decades of censorship and cultural repression sat bottled up until the day Franco died.” – Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
“ This small gem offers a lovely evocation of Spain as well as a touching tribute to an unforgettable moment in time when the Beatles seemed to offer brand new possibilities, the idea that strawberry fields might indeed go on forever. ” – Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter
Language: Spanish (English subtitles)
