Monos

“A monumentally cinematic experience of lush wilderness and raw emotions.” (RogerEbert.com)

Monos is a breathtaking survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson, August: Osage County). The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. With a rapturous score by Mica Levi (only her third, after Under the Skin and Jackie), director Alejandro Landes examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling Lord of the Flies and  Beau Travail in a way that feels wholly original.
