Additional Notes:
ATRAPEN A MINNIEEs una exploración en el sentimiento del que emigra. En el terreno de la no pertenencia del que se vio obligado a mudar su casa, cambiar sus costumbres, hacerse de nuevos amigos, luego de abandonar los propios... Es una oda a su necesidad de pertenecer o de permanecer que es lo mismo; a su necesidad de parecerse que es también su necesidad de desaparecerse. Los conflictos existenciales que acarrean todas esas operaciones emocionales por las que pasa cualquier emigrante, vistos desde la ternura, la compasión, el sentido de justicia que no pareciera regir en las fronteras ni en los servicios de inmigración, y sobre todo, desde el humor que nos constituye y diferencia a los latinoamericanos del Caribe.

Additional Notes:
In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
“Wondrous, devastating, hilarious, and infinitely touching. ‘The Flick’ won my heart. A play to be treasured.” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times “The tenderest drama --- funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking --- now playing at a theater near you. ‘The Flick’ may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater.” - Jesse Green, New York Magazine “Grade: A. A moving and magnificent comedy. ‘The Flick’ is a masterpiece.” - Entertainment Weekly “‘The Flick’ is stunning. Incisive and inventive and unexpectedly moving.”
- Huffington Post “Extraordinary and hilarious. Bursting with compassion.”
- The Hollywood Reporter “Thrilling and sensational. Even if you’ve already experienced ‘The Flick’, see it again. And prepare to be even more blown away.”
- Theatremania “The best play of the year.”
- New York Magazine
