Four Moons (Spanish: Cuatro lunas) is a 2014 Mexican drama directed by Sergio Tovar Velarde.[1][2] It stars Antonio Velázquez,[3] Alejandro de la Madrid,[4] César Ramos, Gustavo Egelhaaf, Alonso Echánove,[5] Alejandro Belmonte, Karina Gidi[6] and Juan Manuel Bernal.[7][8][9][10][11][12] It was one of fourteen films shortlisted by Mexico to be their submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards,[13][14] but it lost out to 600 Miles.[15] Alonso Echánove was nominated for an Ariel Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2015 for his role in Cuatro Lunas.[16]


Four interwoven and complex stories of love and acceptance (of self and others): a boy who has secretly been attracted to his male cousin through life; two college students starting a secret relationship; a committed couple severely tested by the arrival of another man; and an old married man dazzled by a young married male who hustles to get back to his own family.
