After winning the Grand Jury prize at last year’s Venice Film Festival, the timely near future dystopian thriller New Order arrives in North American theatres next month courtesy of Neon. Directed by Mexican filmmaker Michel Franco (After Lucia, April’s Daughter), the movie has a bit of a Parasite vibe as it revolves around a high society wedding being interrupted by a lower class uprising that is causing chaos in the streets of Mexico City. Set against this backdrop, the authorities take the opportunity to enforce military rule and pit both groups against each other, pushing the social divide even further. New Order hits select theatres on May 21st; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
