In You’re Killing Me Susana (Me Estás Matando Susana) Gael Garcia Bernal stars as Eligio, a narcissistic Mexico City soap opera actor who one day is shocked to discover that his wife Susana (Veronica Echegui) has picked up and left him without uttering a word. After learning that she has enrolled in a writing program at an Iowa university, he decides to go after her and persuade her to return to him. Arriving in what appears to be the middle of nowhere during a winter storm, Eligio feels like a fish out of water and is disappointed to find that Susana has already moved on with her life. Slowly it begins to dawn on him that it’s going to take a lot more than his usual boyish charisma and sweet talk to win her back.
