Ingobernable – My Spanish Word Of The Day 12/12/2017

¡Hola amigos!

My Spanish word of the day is ingobernable (ungovernable, rebellious) because I have just become hooked on this Netflix original series starring Kate del CastilloIngobernable is a political thriller in which the fictional president of Mexico dies during a violent confrontation with his wife.  The first lady is on the run.  Although I am only up to episode 3 thus far, it seems clear to me that her rebellious flight is about much more than saving her own skin.

I love the story of first lady Emilia Urquiza fleeing from government officials, but I am also enchanted by 2 other aspects of the show.  As someone who loves fashion, the first thing that I am struck by are the suits that Eréndira Ibarra wears as she portrays Ana Vargas-West, Chief of Staff of the Presidents Office.  These power suits chosen by costumer Carolina De La Torre have an edge to them.  Fashionista that I am, I look forward to seeing what Ms. Ibarra is wearing in each episode.  The second feature of the show that I really love is the haunting theme song.  Me Verás is performed by the Mexican-American musical group La Santa Cecilia.  Once you hear it, it’s really hard to get it out of your head!

If you happen to watch Ingobernable on Netflix, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

¡Hasta la próxima entrada!
