Two siblings rival each other inside the world of professional soccer.

With its refined focus on the particular and its eye to common human foibles, "Rudo y Cursi" is a universal entertainment buoyed by Cuaron's gifted storytelling and realized by the charismatic lead performances of Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal. High praise also to Guillermo Francella for his oily turn.THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Synopsis

Tato and Beto are poor stepbrothers living on a banana plantation in Mexico. Both are talented soccer players, but their dreams lay elsewhere: tone-deaf Tato wants to be a singer, while Beto is content to remain on the plantation. One day, a sports agent sees the two young men playing soccer and offers to take one of them to Mexico City for a chance at sports stardom.
