Argentina’s submission for the Best International Feature Film at the 2020 Academy Awards®, Heroic Losers is a classic underdog adventure that has won widespread praise from audiences and critics alike. Featuring an all-star Argentinian cast (including Ricardo Darín and his real-life son Chino on screen together for the first time), the new comedy from Sebastián Borensztein is a rousing tale of working-class solidarity and collective revenge, based on a novel by Eduardo Sacheri.

The year is 2001, and Argentina is hitting the lowest point in its great depression. His glory days far behind him, retired soccer star Fermín (Darín senior) joins forces with other locals in his small town to finance a grain co-op, hoping it will pull their tight-knit community out of decline. But when they fall prey to a deceptive, sleazy banker, they risk losing everything - unless their crazy plan to steal back their own money actually works.

Rich in local colour and unforgettable characters, Heroic Losers is a homespun Argentine Ocean’s 11 in which revenge has never felt so satisfying.

“A crowd-pleasing heist comedy.”
