Product Description

A visually-stunning and beautifully-acted Argentinean drama, The Last Summer of the Boyita is a tender portrayal of the unexpected revelations that affect two children as they begin the transition to adolescence. ‘La Boyita’, a little bubble-shaped caravan, has always been a place of refuge, games and confessions for Jorgelina and her older sister Luciana. As Luciana enters puberty she begins to seek privacy and independence from her adoring sibling. Rather than tag along after her sister at the beach, Jorgelina decides to spend her summer holidays with her father in the country. There she develops a close friendship with Mario, a local farm boy and jockey. As the children explore the sun-drenched Pampas prairies and each other, they begin to question the similarities they share, and what makes them different.
