The Motorcycle Diaries

There's a smattering of Oscar buzz for this road trip movie based on revolutionary icon Ché Guevara's early autobiography. Gael García Bernal (Y Tu Mamá También) stars as the twentysomething Guevara, who hooks up with a college pal and decides to traverse the length of South America on a motorcycle looking for adventure. Walter Salles (Central Station) directs with an easygoing air and Bernal does a fine acting job. Unfortunately, the script is a bit too happy-go-lucky, giving little hint of Guevara's later philosophical bent. 128 minutes
