Movie Info

An awkward teenager falls for an older, mysterious woman until rumors about her past threaten to come between their tentative romance. When Iris meets Renata, in the Argentinian projects, she is immediately and inexplicably attracted to her. The new presence of Renata makes everybody uncomfortable, and the prejudices are expanded. In the face of hostility, the two girls and their small group of friends become the queer resistance.

Critic Reviews for One in a Thousand (Las mil y una)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

"One in a Thousand" is a fascinating, if at times trying, entry into a canon of queer films that aren't interested in neat narrative beats about coming out or coming clean and indulge instead in the messiness that is teenage desire in all its multitudes.

This is engaging, intelligent film-making and Navas's performers relax into the space that she creates for them.

June 15, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Many of the specifics of the characters are glanced over, so it's hard to identify with them or understand what the stakes are for them.

February 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Even if well-made, the film didn't do enough in its 2 hours to become more than a so-so flick in the LGBT film canon.

January 9, 2022 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Following her subjects through the tangled streets, in an out of small concrete houses or under the archways and up the stairwells where they take shelter, Navas observes them almost as if she were filming a documentary.

December 2, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

While it's rough around the edges, this gritty and evocative coming-of-age drama from Argentina is a tender and sharply observed exploration of self-expression and sexual identity.
