The Mexican hit comedy Rudo y Cursi reunites Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, the stars of Alfonso Cuaron’s 2001 road movie and sex comedy Y tu mama tambien. Rudo y Cursi is about stepbrothers who escape life on a banana farm and find fame, fortune, and rivalry as soccer stars. The film is the directorial debut of Carlos Cuaron, who wrote Y tu mama tambien. Bernal’s and Luna’s friendship and chemistry is on display in this lively discussion, which took place just days before the U.S. theatrical release. Note: some audio from the beginning of the program is missing.
