Dir. Santiago Mitre. 2022. 140 mins. DCP. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Ricardo Darín, Peter Lanzani, Alejandra Flechner, Santiago Armas, Laura Paredes, Carlos Portaluppi. Nominated for Best International Feature at the 2023 Oscars, Argentina, 1985 is inspired by the true story of public prosecutors Julio Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who dared to investigate and prosecute Argentina’s bloodiest military dictatorship. Undeterred by the military’s still considerable influence within their fragile new democracy, Strassera and Moreno Ocampo assembled a young legal team of unlikely heroes for their David-vs-Goliath battle. Under constant threat to themselves and their families, they raced against time to bring justice to the victims of the military junta. Mitre’s film expertly balances emotional historical drama with moments of humor to create a dazzling film about fighting back against corruption and evil.
