Salles again turned to the road movie to chart the coming of age of Che Guevara. Adapted from the revolutionary’s famed memoir, this follows Guevara and spirited pal Alberto Grenado on their journey around South America in the early 1950s, when they discovered a continent bound by injustice. With its charismatic leads open to the genuine encounters of the road, this is a charming, subtle, persuasive account of political awakening.
