THE ENTITLEMENT Trailer



THE ENTITLEMENT tells the story of a troubled young woman, who, upon arriving at an idyllic retreat for the suicidal, finds herself investigating a mysterious death away from the watchful eyes of the retreat’s enigmatic doctor and his wife. Along the way she meets a colorful group of lost souls, all of whom are destined to be each other’s last acquaintances before they decide to die. Audiences have called the film “funny”, “thought-provoking” and, “the next Twin Peaks.”

“Many ideas and people inspired The Entitlement, from the ensemble of actors to the 1937 Spanish play Prohibido suicidarse en primavera. But, mostly, I was interested in a story built on acceptance of suicide as a given, a choice, with no stigma or questions, asked,” says GonzΓ‘lez.

The film was shot entirely in New York. The diverse cast and crew comprises members and regular collaborators of Caborca, whose mission is to produce adventurous works at an intersection of the Latinx/Puerto Rican and experimental art communities. “I have long felt that for a company to work independently and sustainably in a country that refuses to recognize art as a public good is a radical act. This has been a guiding mission in theatre, and to expand it into film feels ripe with meaning at this moment,” says producer and cast member, David Skeist.

Following it’s World Premiere, Caborca’s theatrical film debut, THE ENTITLEMENT, took home the Award for Best Screenplay at the 2018 Manhattan Film Festival. I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Until we have release information, here's the trailer.
