In 1916, a young woman from the village of Santa Poco lures three out-of-work silent film stars to Mexico to help take on the ruthless El Guapo and his gang. Seizing the chance to earn much-needed cash, the amigos head south of the border, but soon discover they’ve been mistaken as their on-screen heroic characters.

From crazy mishaps to colorful musical numbers, this trio of accidental heroes elevates the Western to hilarious heights. Legendary comedy director John Landis (Animal House, Blues Brothers) serves up a fiesta of unforgettable laughs in a quotable classic that gets funnier every time you watch it.

Brother and sister Enrique and Rosa flee persecution at home in Guatemala and journey north, through Mexico and on to the United States, with the dream of starting a new life. It?s a story that happens every day, but until Gregory Nava?s groundbreaking El Norte (The North), the personal travails of immigrants crossing the border to America had never been shown in the movies with such urgent humanism. A work of social realism imbued with dreamlike imagery, El Norte is a lovingly rendered, heartbreaking story of hope and survival, which critic Roger Ebert called "?a Grapes of Wrath for our time."
