Cuba Libre (Spanish)
A great watch for those looking to learn more about Cuban History. As seen through the eyes of two young boys, Simon and Samuel, the movie tells of the war between Cuba and Spain, which ended when Cuba received assistance from America in 1898. However, while Spain was exiting the country, the Americans start to take over.

The Man From The Future (Portugese)
When scientist and physic professor João Henrique accidentally invents a time machine, he goes back in time to warn his then-teenage self about the impending public humiliation from his then-girlfriend Helena, while also giving his younger self some finance tips. Thinking that he's changed his life for the better, he returns to the present time only to find his life much worse.

Inseparables (Spanish)
An Argentinian remake of 2011 French box office hit, "The Intouchables". When wealthy businessman Felipe is left as a quadriplegic after an accident, he ends up hiring his resigning gardener Tito to become his therapeutic assistant, despite the many other qualified candidates. This leads to the two forming an unlikely bond with each other.
