Cin­ema World HD, Hyp­pTV Ch 650, 7.25pm This 2004 Ar­gen­tine, French and Span­ish film is a re­al­is­tic look at the com­ing-of-age strug­gles of five 13-year-old friends liv­ing in a town – which as the ti­tle sug­gests – is ap­prox­i­mately 100km from Buenos Aires. Each of the friends has their own prob­lems: Guido is fre­quently beaten by his fa­ther, Damian suf­fers from iden­tity is­sues re­lated to his adop­tion, Ma­tias is of­ten thrown out of his house by his abu­sive par­ents, Alejo has just dis­cov­ered that his mother is hav­ing an af­fair and the ringleader of the group – Este­ban, is the only one with strong fam­ily roots, which means he bears the added re­spon­si­bil­ity of ral­ly­ing his friends to­gether. To­gether, the boys dis­cover the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of ado­les­cence and grow­ing up.
