Long estranged from his family, migrant laborer Lupe finds relief from the backbreaking work of harvesting peaches in California’s Central Valley through beer-drenched camaraderie and a quiet love affair with fellow immigrant Gloria. Soon the stability of his daily routine begins to crack under the weight of a life scarred with regret and missed opportunities. Filmed in a classic neorealist style, Lupe Under the Sun is at once an intimately drawn meditation on life’s missed chances and a tale of the universal struggles of immigrants.  -Chris Metzler
