Film Society – The Second Mother

February 8, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

The Second Mother

Brazil 2015, 112 min, drama. Portuguese with English subtitles.
Director: Anna Muylaert.

 “Regina Case shines in Anna Muylaert’s warm character study of a live-in maid and her estranged daughter in Sao Paulo.” — Geoff Berkshire, Variety

A wealthy Brazilian couple have a live-in housekeeper who’s been with them for so long that she practically raised their son. When her estranged daughter comes to stay while she studies at university, she is surprised to learn that her mother doesn’t even live in her own home. This sharply observant film (Brazil’s 2015 Oscar entry) mixes dry humour, aching drama, and stinging social commentary to examine the clashes between classes and generations.
