Exclusive Clip From Venice Competition Title ‘Acusada,’ Starring Lali Esposito, Leonardo Sbaraglia
Variety has been given an exclusive clip from crime drama “Acusada” (The Accused), which plays in competition at the Venice Film Festival. The Argentinian film, which is also screening at the Toronto Film Festival, stars Lali Esposito and Leonardo Sbaraglia, with Gael Garcia Bernal in a supporting role.

The film, directed by Gonzalo Tobal, centers on Dolores, a beautiful young woman who is charged with the murder of her best friend. As her loved ones fight to prove her innocence and the trial is about to begin, Dolores puts the entire strategy at risk.

Lima 2018 Review: Father And Son Bond Over One Hunting Season

Despondent and lashing out after the recent death of his mother, teenager Nahuel (Lautaro Bettoni) is sent to stay for a while with his estranged biological father, Ernesto (Germán Palacios), who lives and works as a hunting guide in the Patagonia Region with a whole new family.
