I Carry You With Me Trailer

"I've been thinking about crossing over." Sony Pictures Classics has released the first official trailer for an acclaimed indie drama titled I Carry You With Me (or Te Llevo Conmigo in Spanish), which premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Also playing at the New York Film Festival this fall, and is scheduled for release in early January. "Academy Award nominee Heidi Ewing's luminous, moving debut as a narrative filmmaker, follows a tender romance spanning decades. Starting in provincial Mexico and continuing as first Iván, then Gerardo, journey towards sharing a life together in New York City, I Carry You With Me is an intimate love story, as well as a soulful rumination on family, sacrifice, regret, and ultimately, hope." The film stars Armando Espitia, Christian Vázquez, and also features Michelle Rodríguez​. Described as "a searing saga… in which love is the binding force." Looks like a ravishing film.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Heidi Ewing's I Carry You With Me, direct from SPC's YouTube:

Ambition and societal pressure propel an aspiring chef to leave his soulmate behind in Mexico and make the treacherous journey up to New York City, where life will never be the same. Based on true love, this decades spanning romance begins in Mexico between an aspiring chef and a teacher.

I Carry You With Me, and also known as Te Llevo Conmigo in Spanish, is directed by American filmmaker Heidi Ewing, making her first narrative feature after directing many doc films including The Boys of Baraka, Jesus Camp, 12th & Delaware, Detropia, Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, and One of Us previously. The screenplay is written by Heidi Ewing and Alan Page. This originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Sony Classics will release Ewing's I Carry You With Me in select US theaters on January 8th, 2021 at the start of next year. Who's interested?

I don't mean this with any disrespect, but wouldn't it be nice to see a nice boy-girl romance on screen once in awhile?

These days, that's not a ruling norm. But I believe that will come back some day too ... Or look for Korean or Japanese films. They make a lot of good boy-girl, man-woman romances for the last two decades ... Or even longer than that ...

You got that right...movies like In the Mood for Love, or Lust, Caution. Also, Your Name.

kitano0 on Oct 2, 2020


I still haven't watched Your Name (which I plan to), but you're right, you know what to watch. And I must admit, you picked good ones. So, you know where to find them. You can also try Always (2011), a Korean romance. Not bad. Just a suggestion ...

Sounds good... Always looks like something I would like. If you liked that, may I recommend A Patch of Blue (1965)

kitano0 on Oct 2, 2020


Oldie but goodie, huh? Of course you can recommend it. I know about it, I just didn't get the time to see it. It is one of those golden, classic ones. I can be very picky about my schedule though since I watch so many films and I hardly change the time when I watch some of them. But maybe only when I get an idea from someone. Like this one. Thanks, I will check it. And probably report it back.

This one is based on a true story after all, especially the way this movie was made.

chltjwls on Oct 2, 2020


Isn't that what most romantic movies consist of? Kind of a nonsensical question imo.

Efterklang on Oct 3, 2020


Yeah exactly, and there's hundreds of these movies every year. I post a lot of regular romantic comedy trailers all the time. Or just watch the Hallmark channel around the holidays...

Alex Billington on Oct 3, 2020


I guess I meant "really good" boy-girl romances, not those cheesy type Hallmark-type movies, which, I concede, are ubiquitous. Point taken, though.

kitano0 on Oct 3, 2020


What scares me in this is a country without a perspective for any decent living. Too many of those in today's world...

shiboleth on Oct 2, 2020


In case there is any misunderstanding, it’s not Michelle Rodriguez of Fast & Furious, but the Mexican actress Michelle Rodríguez​ with an accent mark on ‘i’ in her last name.

chltjwls on Oct 2, 2020


Glad you posted this information because from the way it read I thought it was Ms. Rodriguez from the Fast & Furious movies. I hope others who like her work as I do don't go to see this movie expecting that she's in it. Bad marketing if that becomes the case. The story and themes of this film alone make it of interest to me. Years ago I worked with illegal guys at the restaurant where I was the night manager. Good people. Hard workers. My American staff was mostly gay guys with one terrific straight waitress who was amazing. I don't recall any of the Mexican kitchen workers and bus boys being gay and that seems to add just one more difficult thing to deal with trying to 'cross over' and better one's life. I hope this film is well done having the potent themes that it does.

Looks great. And it is fun to hear all the slight variances in the actors' Spanish.
