Highland City Club Film Series: Y Tu Mama Tambien

August 8 - Y Tu Mama Tambien.png

Curator’s Statement:

The great Mexican Director, Alfonso Cuaron (“Gravity”, “Little Princess”, “Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban”) created a remarkably astute observation of two teenagers on a funny, spontaneous, life-affirming road trip with a sexy older woman with a secret that will change their lives forever.    The film feels like the early, loose work of Godard, with scenes that seem to spark and unfold in real time – without any pretense.   Remarkable filmmaking created one of the best road movie’s ever made.

Scott Garen


Alfonso Cuarón directed and co-wrote this sexy art-house hit from Mexico. The funny and moving coming-of-age story centers on two immature teens who get an education in love when they take a sexy road trip with a liberated, unhappily married woman (Maribel Verdu).
