Dominga Sotomayor’s Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama.
Chile in the summer of 1990. As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochet's dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships.
Featuring a standout performance from newcomer, Demian Hernández, as sixteen-year old Sofia, this is a subtly observed and beautifully shot evocation of a time brimming with hope and trepidation.
