You don’t have to read the book to be interested in the movie. It’s an amazing story. Patricia Riggen directs. Patricia Riggen is a native of Mexico, known for directing such films as Under the Same Moon, Lemonade Mouth, and Girl in Progress.
It’s a big cast, including Cote de Pablo, Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, James Brolin, Juliette Binoche, Kate del Castillo, Lou Diamond Phillips, Gabriel Byrne, Mario Casas, Adriana Barraza, and Bob Gunton.
The film opens on November 13.
