The tranquil existence of a live-in housekeeper, who has served a middle class Brazilian family for more than a decade, is turned upside down when her estranged daughter arrives. “The Second Mother” is a fresh, contemporary spin on class in Brazil, wrapped in a deeply moving story of what belonging and family mean. 111 minutes. Portuguese with English subtitles.

“…a culturally specific tale with universal appeal.” — Geoff Berkshire, Variety
