Berenice Bejo’s latest project is one step closer to hitting theaters around the globe…
Goodfellas has acquired the worldwide sales rights to thriller Mexico 86, starring the 47-year-old French-Argentine Oscar-nominated actress.
Mexico 86 stars Bejo as a Guatemalan rebel activist fighting against the corrupt military dictatorship, who is forced to flee to Mexico in 1976, leaving her son behind. A decade later, he comes to live with her, forcing her to choose between her duties as a mother and her revolutionary activism.
Diaz has taken inspiration from his own personal story for the drama.
The film is produced by Need Productions with Tripode Productions, Pimienta Films and Menuetto Film.
Bejo earned a Best Supporting Actress nod for her performance in The Artist. Her other credits include The Past, Eternity and Sweet Dreams.
