2017 Golden Globe Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, NERUDA is a glorious mix of history and imagination from the award-winning director of Jackie and No, Pablo Larrain.

Beloved by the populace, they slip underground and are pursued by vainglorious police inspector Oscar Peluchonneau (the superb Gael Garcia Bernal), hoping to make a name for himself by capturing the country’s most infamous fugitive.
