UIO: Take me for a Ride
Directed by Micaela Rueda
Starring Samanta Caicedo, María Juliana Rángel, Diego Naranjo, Paty Loor and Monserrat Astudillo
Starting her senior year in high school, Sara doesn't have many friends and is caught between an overbearing mother, and a more understanding father. With uneasiness at school and tension in the household, Sara escapes to smoke in a little alley alone – that is – until Andrea, a new classmate, arrives. A close friendship develops to all that can see, but behind closed doors, an intimate relationship unfolds, which, when discovered, throws everything into disarray.

★★★★★ review by J.P. Vitale on Letterboxd
I don't understand the hate for this movie! It was brilliant. That being said these kinds of low budget, foreign coming of age dramas are my bread and butter and this is a particularly good one! Yes, its very glacially paced (re: slow) but in a very artful way.
It's all very well done imho.
Also, its only 65-minutes long but feels 90 lol.
I don't mean that in a negative way, either. This movie is beautiful and artistic. It's very slow and drawn out and I love it.
