Benecio Del Toro in Che

Benecio Del Toro in Che

A labour of love for Academy Award-winning director, Steven Soderberg, CHE features a career defining performance from Benicio Del Toro in the title role which won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

The first film in Steven Soderbergh’s two-part Che Guevara epic tracks the charismatic revolutionary as he joins Fidel Castro’s band of Cuban exiles and journeys to the island on a leaky boat in 1956. From these humble beginnings, the small team of rebels mobilise popular support and recruit an army which will ultimately topple the U.S.-friendly regime of dictator Fulgencio Batista, while Che himself undergoes a transformation from a simple doctor to one of the most iconic political figures of the modern age.
