In the heart of Montevideo, affable but secretly troubled Leo wraps himself in the comfort of a small rented room. He's unmotivated to finish his college thesis or find a job, and content with infrequent visits from his girlfriend. After their relationship ends, Leo begins to break out of his shell by cruising the Internet for a new companion, enlisting the aid of a sympathetic therapist. But a chance reunion with a classmate forces him to consider the true meaning of his reclusive lifestyle—and a future outside the metaphoric safety of his room. Featuring an affecting soundtrack and an endearing cast, director Enrique Buchichio's affirming drama is a unique vision of isolation and coming-of-age set against a modern tale of romance and friendship. LEO'S ROOM (EL CUARTO DE LEO) is presented in Spanish with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative.
