Trailer: Diego Luna directs Everything Will Be Fine for Netflix

Diego Luna is headed to Netflix this August for his latest directorial project, Everything Will Be Fine.
Produced and directed by the Y Tu Mama Tambien and Rogue One star, the series takes place in Mexico City and is a comedy-drama that reflects on the idea of family and relationships today.
“This story is born from an urgent need to question the idea of the perfect couple, romantic love, the creation of a family and the fusing of expectations that one may have about a relationship in an act as cold, institutional and contradictory as marriage sometimes can be,” says Luna.
“My whole life has been about understanding farewells and separations. Since I was a child, I had to learn to say goodbye to my mother at a very young age, then part ways over and over again with long-term or ephemeral courtships stemming back to elementary school. There were many nights when I cried saying farewell to theatre, film and television colleagues who I had come to consider as part of my family; fundamental relationships that always ended abruptly with the last filming call or function. All our lives we are bombarded with absurd ideals of almost eternal relationships, lifelong partners and inalienable commitments… but nobody really teaches us to say goodbye.”
The series also questions gender roles and the idea of a traditional family, and looks at those who want to imagine things differently than what they read in children’s stories.
Filmed during the coronavirus pandemic, it will premiere on Netflix on 20th August. Here’s the trailer:
Everything Will Be Fine is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
