Imagining Argentina Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Accomplished British screenwriter [[Performer~P93288~Christopher Hampton~christopherhampton]] directs the political drama Imagining Argentina, based on the novel by [[Performer~P372581~Lawrence Thornton~lawrencethornton]]. Set during the unsettling disappearances in Buenos Aires during the dictatorship of the 1970s, the film involves theater director Carlos Rueda ([[Performer~P3682~Antonio Banderas~antoniobanderas]]) and his wife Cecilia ([[Performer~P70692~Emma Thompson~emmathompson]]). Shortly after Cecilia writes an editorial commentary questioning the mysterious abductions, she is herself abducted and taken into police custody. Soon Carlos develops the supernatural ability to see into the future and he imagines his wife meeting an awful fate during an escape attempt. To make matters worse, their teenage daughter Teresa ([[Performer~P372850~Leticia Dolera~leticiadolera]]) is also kidnapped. Imagining Argentina was nominated for the Golden Lion at the 2003 Venice Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
