This is not your mama’s Oedipus … In Luis Alfaro’s thrilling reboot of the daddy of all tragedies, a young Chicano ex-con sets out on a journey to be the king of the South Central LA gangland. Set amid the sizzling rhythms and explosive violence of an inner-city barrio, the gripping story follows his family of ex-cons through the vicious cycle of fate and violence in which they find themselves trapped. Oedipus el Rey is a sexy, modern take on a classic.
