On leave in Buenos Aires, 18 year-old Bennie Tetrocini (Ehrenreich) seeks out his estranged brother Angelo (Gallo), now going by the name Tetro. Idealising his sibling as an artistic genius, Bennie finds an unfinished play Tetro has written about their domineering father. Then all hell breaks loose.
Frustrating and fitfully compelling, Tetro may not be a return to former glories, but this is Coppola through and through, an over-ambitious effort about thwarted ambition, full of ideas and passion, and smitten with cinema.
