#SUNDANCE: “I CARRY YOU WITH ME”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
I Carry You With Me follows Iván and Gerardo from the beginning of their relationship in Mexico to their life as immigrants in New York City.
Director Heidi Ewing tells the story of the power of love and the lengths people will go to for a better life. Ewing and her co-writer Alan Page Arriaga’s Script has a steady pace, the cinematography by Juan Pablo Ramírez is gorgeous and the two leads, Armando Espitia and Christian Vázquez, are mesmerizing. There is a creative change Ewing takes in the Third-Act. That creative change is one that I believe elevates the story, however, there will be many who disagree.
