Description

Original title: Miriam miente

Set in Dominican Republic, a quiet middle class world of good intentions begins to crumble when fourteen-year-old Miriam meets her internet boyfriend. While her family and friends prepare for her traditional fifteenth birthday party and look forward to meeting Miriam’s mysterious new date, Miriam doesn’t know how to explain that her boyfriend is black. A tender film about the demands of social conventions, the competitiveness of young girls, and the pressures of growing up, Miriam Lies unfolds with grace and the talented Dulce Rodríguez shines as a young girl trying to navigate this world of constrained expectations.

Sinopsis española

El tranquilo y bienintencionado mundo de la clase media de República Dominicana comienza a derrumbarse cuando Miriam, de catorce años de edad, conoce a su novio por internet. Mientras su familia y sus amigos preparan la tradicional fiesta de quince años y esperan ansiosos conocer a la nueva cita de Miriam, ella no sabe cómo explicarles a todos que su novio es negro. Este tierno filme pone en la pantalla las exigencias de las convenciones sociales, la competitividad de las jóvenes y las presiones del proceso de maduración. Miriam miente se desenvuelve con gracia y la talentosa actriz Dulce Rodríguez brilla en el papel de una adolescente que intenta navegar este mundo de expectativas constreñidas.
