US actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck this week launched a big press tour in Miami to promote his film "The Way Back," in which he plays a man with painful similarities to some of the worst moments of his life in recent years.

In an interview with EFE in which he showed off his good Spanish, Affleck confessed that this was a story that really attracted his attention because it focuses on "compassion," something that he feels is the mission that film must have now.
