My Spanish word of the day is ingobernable (ungovernable, rebellious) because I have just become hooked on this Netflix original series starring Kate del Castillo. Ingobernable 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!
