Rudo y Cursi (R1/US BD) in August - Artwork added

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Rudo y Cursi on 25th August 2009. From the creators and stars Y Tu Mama Tambien comes this comedic drama following two brothers' rivalry which [object]s from the rural banana plantation where they play soccer for the village team, to the big city stadiums where they battle on opposing sides. When a talent scout gets stranded in their tiny town, brothers Beto (Diego Luna) and Tato (Gael Garcia Bernal) are discovered and whisked away to Mexico City to play for the big leagues where they quickly achieve fame. Beto is nicknamed "Rudo" for his hotheaded goalkeeper style and Tato is called "Cursi" for his peculiar scoring technique. But success leads to excess as Rudo descends into a quagmire of gambling debt and drug abuse and Cursi is distracted by beautiful women and a second career as a pop singer. Having come so far, will the siblings remember their original goal: building a home for their mother?
