Movie Info

Set in Huilotepec, a community in the Mexican countryside, Summer of Goliath revolves around three characters: Teresa, who embarks on a mission to determine why her husband has suddenly abandoned her; her son Gabino, who is in the military and spends his time conducting car searches, as well as intimidating the locals, with his fellow soldier Alberto; and 16-year-old Oscar - nicknamed Goliath - who is socially outcast because of a rumor that he killed his girlfriend. Dominated by Teresa's wanderings and her interactions with the town's inhabitants, Summer of Goliath hauntingly depicts a community suffering from the effects of lost loved ones, broken promises, disconnection, and eternal longing. -- (C) Anthology

Pereda has proven adept at paying tributes and trying on parental wardrobes; one can only imagine what a heavy hitter he'll be once he finds his own voice and something to say with it.

Top Critic

There's very little of a concise plot to be found here, but the overall result is invigorating and even haunting, especially in its final moments.

Challenging, unsettling little movie doesn't quite come together.
