When the lavish upper-class wedding of two affluent citizens is suddenly interrupted by violent rioters who take their house by siege, it soon becomes apparent that this seemingly random attack is part of a nationwide working class uprising. As seen through the eyes of the sympathetic young bride Marianne (Naian Gonzalez Norvind) and the servants who work for – and against – her wealthy family, New Order breathlessly traces the collapse of one political system as a more harrowing replacement arises.
With parallels drawn to Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite, Franco’s latest is a terrifying edge-of-your- seat commentary on the haves and have-nots of modern-day Mexico. New Order blends political allegory with an all-too-recognisable dystopian brutality that is subversive and disturbing in equal measure.
The film stars Naian González Norvind, Diego Boneta, Mónica del Carmen, Fernando Cuautle, Darío Yazbek, Roberto Medina, Patricia Bernal, Lisa Owen, and Enrique Singer.
New Order will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 13th August. Then from 10th September it will be released exclusively on MUBI.
