Macarena Gómez returns today to the Spanish cinemas in the film En las estrellas. Directed by Zoe Berriatua, with whom she has already worked on Los héroes del mal (The Heroes of Evil), this is a very moving drama.
When creativity can deal with life’s problems
For the main character, Victor, things are going badly. He is a film director whose wife has recently passed away; a fact that has depressed him and turned him into an alcoholic. Also, he is unemployed.
However, with his son, he can flee from reality. Despite her misfortunes, her creativity is still intact. And he tells him the fantasy stories that he would like to direct in the future. Together they share impossible worlds that make a good relationship between father and son even closer. But she is threatened by the questioning that others make about her ability to be a father.
In the film, Macarena Gomez plays Angela, the deceased woman, who appears as a ghost in Victor’s fantasy worlds. Despite his death, he remains completely in love.
