(Dominga Sotomayor, 2018, Chile/Brazil/Argentina/The Netherlands/Qatar, 111 minutes)

Set in 1990 Chile at the end of Pinochet’s reign, Too Late to Die Young focuses on 16-year-old Sofía (Demian Hernández), who, like most leads in coming of age stories, is itching to be a little bit older than what she is. Sofía has a clear, age-appropriate suitor in Lucas (Antar Machado), but she’s drawn to a cool older guy named Ignacio (Matías Oviedo) instead. Director Sotomayor has a keen eye for visuals, calling to mind recent independent touchstones such as Beasts of the Southern Wild.
