Why watch this film?
Awarded at the San Diego International Film Festival, 'El principio de un nuevo amor' ('The Bachelors') is a coming-of-age drama that also deals with loss and grief. In this sense, the film is full of clichés, but manages to balance mourning with a great sense of humor, largely thanks to its excellent cast which includes Julie Delpy ('Lolo: el hijo de mi novia'), Odeya Rush ('Lady Bird') and Josh Wiggins. However, the standout performance is by J.K. Simmons (Oscar winner for 'Whiplash: Music and Obsession'), who achieves cathartic scenes that will certainly bring tears.
After the early death of his wife, a mourning father moves with his teenage son across the country for a private school teaching job. Their lives begin to transform due to two unique women, who help them embrace life and love again.
