The Love Hex or Nicest Flings in Mexico

As the New York City summer of 1929 gives way to autumn, socialite and poet Rose is unhappily married to a mobster lawyer and suffering from early-onset arthritis. Her friend Alice, a recently-widowed mother of three, languishes in her posh home with chronic fatigue. Rose’s doctor recommends a daring cure: a hot-springs treatment in Mexico. Together the women travel to the small town of Tehuacán...and hook up with two young beaus. The days are jolly—that is, right up until Día de los Muertos, when Rose’s jealous husband arrives out of the blue...

This charming romantic comedy examines the many things in life we don’t quite understand—such as enchantment, magic spells, and love of all kinds.
