Love is not for everybody; that’s is Carla’s conclusion after years of working as an obstetrician. Even though she is a young, beautiful and successful doctor, something in her life is missing. She faces some challenges that make her discover why Everybody Loves Somebody.
«This is a universal love story,» said Catalina Mastretta. «This happens to everyone, every color, every race. Love is confusing and is complicated. That is why it is good.»
Last Monday, February 13, in the press conference with the actors; Karla Souza, Ben O’Toole, Tiaré Scanda, Patricia Bernal and the director Catalina Aguilar Mastretta, we discussed the challenges of the production. Also, how the movie presents another reality about the life in Mexico, leaving stereotypes aside.
Everybody Loves Somebody is a bilingual romantic comedy between the city of Los Angeles and Ensenada, Baja California. Clara, the main character, thinks that loves is unlikely most of the time. The challenge started when her parents are celebrating their wedding after forty years in love. Clara lives in Los Angeles and brings a coworker to her parents wedding. During the wedding, the man who was the love of her life appears. A complicated love triangle is made and Clara needs to make a decision that takes her in unexpected ways.
When we talked to Karla Souza, about how she related to the character she told us: «Everyone has that relationship just sublime, and perfect but then they come in the present, and they don’t really live up to who they used to be.» She said. “I’m proud of my Mexican background, the diversity of the movie was something we always want to bring into the screen. But I was really happy we get to see this daily life, as an everyday life of an immigrant living in the United States.»
The story shows another face of the life in Ensenada and Los Angeles. The photography and the use of landscapes in the U.S. and Mexico offered the spectator the familiarity of being part of Carla’s Family.
The film will be distributed on February 17 by Pantelion Films.
