Director Cesc Gay's idea for IN THE CITY came to him at a meal with friends: a private, secret look at a group of characters who have a number of emotional experiences they never talk about.
The movie that came from this inspiration is IN THE CITY, the ensemble story of a group of thirty-something friends in Barcelona. Behind the facade of their friendship are many secrets. For example, single Sofia lives a fantasy life of romance and unconscious lies. Tomas is having a secret affair with one of his students. Married Irene finds herself attracted to her friend Silvia.
Although the friends spend much time together, they maintain their secrets and often fail to connect. One day, however, when they come together for a meal, emotions spill over.
Sensitively written and beautifully acted, IN THE CITY tells a revealing story about urban life and angst.
