My Last Round in Miami Film Festival

Rocky meets Brokeback Mountain in Julio Jorquera’s powerful debut drama about an epileptic boxer who falls in love with a younger man. Octavio, a struggling Chilean boxer who works as a hairdresser during the day falls in love with Hugo, a troubled young man who finds himself searching for his true self. Both men struggle with their sexual identities as well as their personal and professional lives. Octavio gets a dreadful medical diagnosis that could end his last shot at boxing glory. Is he ready to hang up his boxing gloves or is he willing to fight one last time? -Andres Castillo
