Mexico’s biggest box-office hit of all time takes satirical aim at the idle rich when a self-made mogul tricks his three spoiled-rotten kids into believing they are paupers. You don’t have to be from Tijuana, though, to recognise the character types being satirised with such finesse by the film’s fine troupe of comic talent. When his daughter declares with a flounce that he can’t stop her marrying a moneyless wastrel many years her senior, multi-millionaire Germán takes the wake-up call. He realises what partying throngs of hangers-on have known for years: his three 20-something children are vain, extravagant, hideously spoiled and incapable of fending for themselves. The time has come to revoke their keys and credit cards.

“Loaded with topical references to today’s millennial party kids – a breed much the same no matter where you are in the world – The Noble Family is a slick, stylish and very funny comeuppance comedy. A sequel is already in the works, and don’t be surprised if you see a Hollywood remake down the pike.” — Vancouver International Film Festival
