Big egos collide in the new teaser for “Official Competition” starring Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, and Oscar Martinez.
“In search of significance and social prestige, a billionaire businessman decides to make a film to leave his mark,” a plot synopsis reads. “To do so, he hires the best: a stellar team formed by famous filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) and two renowned actors, both enormously talented, but with even bigger egos: the Hollywood actor Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas) and radical theatre thespian Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez).”
“Both legends, but not exactly the best of friends,” it continues. “Through a series of increasingly eccentric challenges set by Lola, Felix and Iván must face not only each other but also their own legacies.”
The Spanish comedy — directed by Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn — will premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.
