Focus Features is bringing all the laughs this holiday season, with one of the most heartfelt comedies of the year. ‘Half Brothers’ starring Luis Gerardo Méndez is a movie you don’t want to miss.
This iconic hispanic collaboration tells the story of Renato’s journey, played by talented Mexican star Méndez, as he goes back into an emotional encounter with his long lost father, played by Colombian actor Juan Pablo Espinosa.
The movie shows stunning locations in Mexico, as Renato is forced to go on a road trip with his recently discovered half-brother played by American actor Connor Del Rio. Directed by Luke Greenfield and written by Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman, the film is set to be released in theaters on December 4th.

The trailer for the movie gives a glimpse of the funny situations the two brothers will find along the way, as they find more about their father’s secret, even coming across the cultural shock between Mexico and the U.S.
Greenfield seems to be the perfect director for this film, after being involved in different comedy classics, such as The Girl Next Door featuring Elisha Cuthbert and Olivia Wilde , and Something Borrowed featuring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin.
The film goes beyond the comedic family scenario, as the plot involves the journey of many immigrants on the search for a better life, and promises to give a better understanding of the hardships many people still face nowadays.
We can’t wait for the release of this incredible feel-good film, coming just in time for the holiday season!
