You’re Killing Me Susana

You’re Killing Me Susana centers on Eligio (Gael García Bernal), a narcissistic Mexico City soap actor whose wife Susana (Verónica Echegui) has left him without uttering a word. Discovering she’s enrolled in a writing program at an Iowa university, he decides to go after her and persuade her to return to him, but upon arriving soon discovers she’s already moved on. Eligio soon learns it’s going to take a lot more than his usual boyish charisma and sweet talk to win her back.

Based on the novel Deserted Cities (Ciudades Desiertas) by José Agustín, it’s directed by by Roberto Sneider (Tear This Heart Out) and cowritten by Sneider and Luis Camara. You’re Killing Me Susana also stars Ashley Grace, Jadyn Wong, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson and Adam Hurtig.

"A comedy with really funny moments and a natural colloquial language just as in the novel that this film is based on."

Adrián Ruiz, Excelsior

"Sneider's brilliant adaptation of Ciudades Desiertas shines because of its good comedy timing and wonderful cast chemistry."

Fernanda Solórzano, Letras Libres
