This Time Tomorrow is an intimate portrait of a family’s everyday life before and after a tragic incident that forces them to confront an uncertain future.


Bogotá, Colombia. 17-year-old Adelaida lives with her parents Lena, an event planner, and Francisco, a sculptor and art teacher. Together, they enjoy a comfortable family life with the usual ups and downs. But cracks are beginning to show. As Francisco isn’t that involved in the domestic details, most of the housekeeping and parental duties fall onto the already overworked Lena. Although she is strong and driven, she struggles to fulfill the role of the working mother. At the peak of her teen angst and facing her own identity crisis, Adelaida is constantly at odds with Lena: one minute she is sweet, caring, studious, and the next one she is wild, tempestuous and defiant, staying out late to spend time with friends and flirting with boys. Until a tragedy occurs and the family has to confront their biggest struggle yet and the uncertainty that tomorrow brings.

This Time Tomorrow is an intimate portrait of a family’s everyday life before and after a tragic incident that forces them to confront an uncertain future.


"CRITIC'S PICK." — Village Voice

"That fragile changeability of family life is beautifully and painfully captured... Rodriguez has a marvelously perceptive eye (or, more crucially, ear) for the ways in which the pettiest disagreements and disobediences can escalate into full-blown domestic battlefields." — Guy Lodge, Variety

"The film makes its points with a shattering emotional power." — The Hollywood Reporter

"Lina Rodriguez's excellent sophomore feature overturns the longstanding male perspective of female teenage characters as little more than objects of desire." — Film Journal International

"Not just fresh and bold, but like the most delicate of cinematic languages." — Slant Magazine

"As in a Chekhov play, Rodriguez enthuses trivial moments with unexpected poignancy." —

"Rodriguez's concerns pick up where Ozu left off when he died in the early '60s." — Gay City News

"One of the directors to follow in Latin America." —Diego Battle, Otros Cines
