Ali
Directed By: Paco R. Baños
(Spain, 2013, 85 mins, DCP)

Chain-smoking and peddling booze, teenaged Ali isn’t one to drop her guard. Nevertheless, Paco R. Baños’ debut exposes her vulnerabilities and thoughtfully explores her insecurities. A coming-of-age tale hinging on hard-won lessons, Ali "locks the viewer in by virtue of its earthy performances and generosity of spirit."—Hollywood Reporter
