While we got some understanding of Will Ferrell’s March 16 Spanish-language comedy Cara de mi Padre from its first trailer, here is a plot description and another trailer about the many hats worn by the mysterioso Armando Alvarez. Metaphorical hats, obviously. The only literal hat he wears is his cowboy hat. Maybe sometimes a beanie if it’s really cold.
Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch faces financial strains, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) and pledges to settle all his father’s debts. It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over, but when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, the Alvarez family finds themselves in a full-out war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).
