So proud of our dear friends, Rupert and Joann Reyes, for all their hard work in making this movie, "Vecinos," meaning "neighbors." Just knowing they're behind it already tells me that this is going to be good.
No, you're never too old to fall in love.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, too!

A Bilingual Rom-Com, Written and Set in Austin
Vecinos tells the story of neighbors, brought together by proximity, but held together by something much more personal. Roberto hasn’t done much changing lately, but even from his couch he’s seen his neighborhood become a place he barely recognizes. When Maria moves in down the hall from him, though, Roberto has no choice but to consider the good side of change. Vecinos reminds us that no matter how easy it is to lose your identity in a city that won’t sit still, it’s even easier to lose it when you’re the one sitting still.
