Our next Rialto Recommends is Pablo Larrain's 2013 film NO based on a play by Antonio Skarmeta. In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote 'Yes' or 'No' to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the 'No' vote persuade a brash young advertising executive, René Saavedra, to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and while under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. NO uses its history-driven storyline to offer a bit of smart, darkly funny perspective on modern democracy and human nature. The Toronto Star called NO "A mesmerizing, realistic and often hilarious look at the politics of power and the power of ideas ..." While the Philadelphia Inquirer said "A political drama, a personal drama, a sharp-eyed study of how the media manipulate us from all sides, NO reels and ricochets with emotional force." NO is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, Apple, GooglePLay, YouTube and others.
