無藥可究 The Other Tom

1h 51m 拉美風情 The Passion of Latin American Cinema 2021


In the Texas border town of El Paso, single mother Elena struggles to raise her son Tom, who has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Prescribed a set of mood-altering medication, the child’s personality changes into “the other Tom”. But as his circumstances go worsen, Elena questions the validity of his treatment and her right to raise her son by herself. Plá and Santullo’s bilingual drama tackles the overmedication of children and offers a probing, empathetic look at the immigrant reality in the US.
