The T&I Spanish Program of GSTILE is proud to present the twenty-
fourth film in its Argentine Film Series. This is a continuing, free-of-
charge event, open to all MIIS students, faculty, staff and guests. Films
are in Spanish with English subtitles. The blockbuster comedy UN
NOVIO PARA MI MUJER (A BOYFRIEND FOR MY WIFE, 2009) will be
screened Tuesday, October 6 at 6:30 PM in Room B 104. The film stars
award-winning actor and producer Adrián Suar as Valeria Bertuccelli’s
husband. Valeria is the “perfect” manifestation of pessimism, bad vibes
and constant nagging and whining. Adrián is so fed up with her that he
tries to find a man who will seduce her, since he can’t bring himself to
ask for a divorce.

A BOYFRIEND FOR MY WIFE has been recognized both by film critics
and audiences alike, and has been nominated for four Silver Condor
Awards—the statuette of the Argentine Film Critics Association—for Best
Actor (Adrián Suar), Best Actress (Valeria Bertuccelli), Best Supporting
Actor (Gabriel Goity) and Best Screenplay (Pablo Solarz).
