In Y Tu Mamá También, director Alfonso Cuarón’s Mexican mega hit, Tenoch (Diego Luna) and Julio (Gael García Bernal) play teens with a penchant for wisecracking and getting into trouble who meet a woman a little too old for them named Luisa (Maribel Verdú). Despite the age gap she takes them up on their offer of a road trip, and the tale that ensues created a lot of controversy when the film premiered in 2001 because of its depiction of sexuality. Enjoy this Cuarón classic the way you should–with a belly full of guacamole and a buzz by attending Film Feast: Y Tu Mamá También this Wednesday at Nitehawk Cinema. It’s a food and film pairing featuring Mexican bites paired with cocktails incorporating Tequila Ocho. Different selections from the menu will be served to coincide with certain parts of the film. Tickets are $75.
