The comedic drama Living is Easy with Eyes Closed has been charming audiences and winning awards worldwide. Spain’s submission for an Academy Award in the Foreign Language Film category, it took home six Goya Awards (Spain’s equivalent of the Oscars) including Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Writing, and Best Leading Actor. The film takes place in 1966 in Spain and stars Javier Cámara as Antonio, a mild-mannered English teacher and Beatles lover who uses the group’s lyrics extensively in his classroom. When he learns that John Lennon will be in Spain, he embarks on a road trip to meet his idol. Along the way, he picks up two young hitchhikers, a pregnant woman and a young man escaping a bad family situation. The trio form a strong bond over the course of the trip that helps them all believe in the possibility of a better tomorrow for them and their country.
