We Are the Nobles

Nosotros los Nobles

Mexico, 2013
108 minutes, Color

This smash-hit culture-clash comedy from Mexican director Gaz Alazraki earned more than $26 million at the domestic box office at the time. We Are the Nobles inspired several international remakes and an English-language Netflix remake is currently in the works. "Wealth shall not pass three generations," goes the old adage, but that's cold comfort to widower and workaholic businessman German Noble (Gonzalo Vega), who realizes the fortune he's inherited and massaged would soon be squandered by his three spoiled-rotten kids if left to their own devices. The answer? A fake bankruptcy, of course, after which Noble forces his kids to get jobs. This inventive satire about the economic gulf in modern Mexico is shrewd and very funny; stay through the closing credits for a final surprise.—Eddie Cockrell
