Lovely, middle-aged Clara Goldstein (Aleandro) places an ad in the personals section of a Buenos Aires newspaper, hoping to find a soul mate.

Why we love it
MMignogna’s warmly funny, mature love story is distinguished by the presence of Argentine movie stars Aleandro and Luppi, who invest this romantic little charmer with class and intelligence. Wanting to save face with her family, Clara instructs Raul in the tenets of Judaism, hoping she can pass him off as a suitable lover. Of course, something genuinely tender sparks between them, then blossoms. Set amid a contemporary urban enclave of multi-ethnic Buenos Aires, Mignogna’s “Autumn Sun” tackles cross-faith love with poetic flair and an affectionate sense of humor.
