The Sugar Curtain

3 out of 5 stars
Camila Guzmán Urzúa returns to the place where she was raised, Havana, in this memoir about a revolution gone wrong. Via interviews with her long-lost school chums and ’80s artists and activists, she paints a tantalizing picture of a land on the brink of a utopia that turned out to be an impossible promise. Although the film fails to reveal anything new about the country’s current crisis or the Cuban diaspora, it’s a bittersweet tribute to what could have been.
