“A career-defining performance by the great Sônia Braga – weathered, proud, sensuous, fragile – captivates and brings us into her world.”
– Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice
Sonia Braga commands the screen as beautifully as ever, in this intimate, bracing drama that debuted to great acclaim at Cannes this year. Braga stars as Clara, a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, who is the last resident of the Aquarius, an older seaside building in the upper-class Boa Viagem Avenue in Recife. Clara lives comfortably, but she has sworn to leave her apartment only upon death, and that doesn’t please the corporation with other plans for the property. What transpires is a cold war of nerve-wracking confrontations, and the tension also sparks Clara’s memories and gets her thinking about the future, in this lovely and resonant film. In Portuguese with English subtitles. Writer/Director: Kleber Mendonça Filho. (Brazil 2016) 145 min.
