Screenplay by Carlos Cuarón, Alfonso Cuarón. Cast: Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, Maria Aura, Diana Bracho, Emilio Echevarría, Verónica Langer. Alfonso Cuarón received his first Academy Award nomination (for Original Screenplay) for Y Tu Mamá También, which follows Julio Zapata (Gael García Bernal) and Tenoch Iturbide (Diego Luna), two hormone and drug-addled teens as they embark on a life-changing road trip with 28-year-old Luisa Cortes (Maribel Verdú). Tenoch and Julio, who come from Mexico City’s upper and middle class, are polar opposites to the oppressed, long-suffering protagonists typical to many earlier Mexican moviesThrough these characters and their energetic, honest portrayal, Cuarón tapped into a new cinematic moment reflective of the new political order and nationalism in Mexico.
