Gente de Bien / Decent People

Gente de Bien / Decent People

Ten-year-old Eric, along with his dog Lupe, is sent to live with his estranged father in this naturalistic drama that artfully examines class differences in Colombia. Gabriel, a down-on-his-luck handyman, is forced into parenthood, opening up his small Bogotá apartment to unimpressed son Eric. After taking him to a well-off family home where he does carpentry work, he finds that a new world is opened up for Eric. Gabriel’s employer offers to help by taking them away for Christmas but her good intentions merely highlight the class divide between them.
