All Inclusive

Kris Rothstein

In All Inclusive, written by Paula Del Fierro and Julio Rojas and directed by Rodrigo Ortúzar Lynch, a Mexican family travels to an all-inclusive beach resort, where their issues bubble to the surface. It’s neat to see a family melodrama, a genre that is so American, set in another culture, but although this film is polished and well acted, the content is pretty obvious. A medical test result is mentioned and we know that someone is dying; the weather channel mentions a storm and we know a hurricane is coming. There are surprising moments, though, and enough laughs to make it worthwhile.
