    Tim Roth stars in Mexico’s submission for the Academy Award directed by Gabriel Ripstein. Arnulfo Rubio smuggles weapons for a deadly Mexican cartel. ATF agent Hank Harris (Roth) attempts to apprehend him, but gets kidnapped by Rubio, instead. Rubio takes him to his bosses, but during the 600-miles-long drive, they slowly befriend one another. 600 Miles is a thriller, a road movie and a relationship drama: a nail biter to the very last frame with superb performances. Winner of Berlin Film Festival Best First Feature Award.
