Much Ado About Nothing
Based on a recent controversial real-life case, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is an unsettling and morally ambiguous suspense drama by Sundance-winning Chilean director Alejandro Fernández Almendras (To Kill a Man), one of the hottest helmers in Latin America. A sexy, surprising, provocative and socially engaged film shot at stunning natural locations in Chile.
Vicente is a young, reckless loner who comes back to his parents’ beach house after a year studying in LA. One of those random nights of downing shots and chasing girls changes his life forever when Vicente becomes the prime suspect in a hit-and-run that kills a local fisherman.
Vicente was wasted. His memories are a blur. Yes, he was in the car, but he swears he wasn’t driving. And what’s worse, the guy he remembers being behind the wheel is the son of a powerful politician. A tangled web of lies engulfs the truth, crushing out a social scandal before it can begin.
