Marcos and his family work as ranch hands. His father and brother handle the heavier tasks while Marcos stays home near his mother. Each has a path to follow, yet Marcos bides his time waiting for Carnival, the one moment where he can let his true self out to shine. Marilyn is a nuanced story of rural oppression, prejudice, and homophobia where characters are pushed to their limits to an unavoidable and desperate conclusion. Based on a shocking real case, Walter Rodriguez gives a powerful breakthrough lead performance as a boy confronted with the impossibility of being who he wants to be.
