A24’s Problemista trailer, starring Los Espookys co-creator Julio Torres and Tilda Swinton, teases a delightful, strange comedy.
Everyone knows the world is full of wolves waiting to devour you whole. They lurk in the shadows, haunt your dreams, and salivate as they wait for you to stumble so they can make their move. Your only choice is to grow eyes in the back of your head, remain vigilant, and prepare yourself for what may come. In A24‘s Problemista trailer, a young man faces deportation unless he can rise above adversity and find a sponsor to help stave off the government hounds.
The Problemista trailer depicts a bizarre comedy, serving as the directorial debut of Los Espookys co-creator Julio Torres. In addition to directing the feature, Torres stars alongside Tilda Swinton as Alejandro, an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his ideas to life in New York City. Unfortunately for Alejandro, his work visa is about to expire. He must abandon his dream of making it big in the United States unless he can find a reputable sponsor to vouch for him. Luckily, Alejandro meets Elizabeth (Swinton), an off-the-wall outcast of the art world looking for inspiration. With their talents combined, Alejandro and Elizabeth could create something unique before the fuzz gobbles up the young man.
Torres directs from a script he wrote while producing alongside Fruit Tree Films‘s Dave McCary. Ali Herting and Emma Stone. RZA, Greta Lee, Catalina Saaverdra, and James Scully also star, with Isabella Rossellini narrating Alejandro and Elizabeth’s inspiring story.
Created by Torres, Ana Fabrega, and Fred Armisen, Los Espookys follows a group of friends who turns their love for horror into a peculiar business, providing spectacle to those who need it in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just part of daily life. Cassandra Ciangherotti, Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Bernardo Velasco, Fred Armisen, José Pablo Minor, River L. Ramirez, and more star.
A24 is adding another unique film to its growing cinematic library after hosting titles like Everything Everywhere All At Once, Midsommar, Beau Is Afraid, Pearl, Talk to Me, The Whale, Pi, and many more. Problemista looks like it’s right up my alley. I can’t wait to check it out. How about you? Let us know in the comments section.
