Score! From the creators and stars of the international sensation Y Tu Mamá También, comes a raucous comedic drama following two brothers’ rivalry. When a talent scout gets stranded in their tiny town, brothers Beto (Diego Luna; Milk, The Terminal) and Tato (Gael García Bernal; Bad Education, Babel) are discovered and whisked away to Mexico City to play for the big leagues where they quickly achieve fame. Beto is nicknamed “Rudo” for his hotheaded goalkeeper style and Tato is called “Cursi” for his peculiar scoring technique. But success leads to excess as Rudo descends into gambling debt and drug abuse and Cursi is distracted by beautiful women and a second career as a pop singer. Having come so far, will the siblings remember their original goal: building a home for their mother?
