  • In his first feature film, Raúl Fuentes dares to explore the psyche of a woman caught in a vicious self-sabotaging cycle that incapacitates her ability to love. EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMEBODY...NOT ME details the story of Alejandra, a condescending intellectual with many emotional problems, who lacks the capacity to connect with anyone around her. When Alejandra meets Maria, an evolving and curious private school teen, the two start a passionate love affair that makes their generation gap seem trivial. Before long, the couple realizes their differences when Alejandra obsessively tries to control Maria's activities, interests and decisions. Alejandra's oppression becomes worse than a parent's and Maria must decide whether or not she wants this intense relationship with such an apprehensive person to continue. Shot in black and white, Raúl Fuentes' innovative filmmaking approach and his unconventional narrative unquestionably marks him as a new and exciting voice in contemporary Mexican cinema. —Dilcia Barrera
