Sean is a TV weatherman on the verge of a nervous breakdown six months after the end of a romantic relationship.
He hires Ernesto, a Mexican day laborer, to repaint his deck and finds ways to extend the job in order to escape his loneliness.
This quirky drama reveals the inherent human need for connectedness and the peculiar way some individuals deal with the dilemma.
Some may find Papi Chulo directed by John Butler (USA) 2018 charming while others may view it as a bit creepy. I nearly gave up midway but managed to watch it to the end.
Papi Chulo was released by Breaking Glass Pictures 5 November 2019 on DVD and Blu-ray.
