THE SECOND MOTHER (Que horas ela volta?) March 22 @ 7:00 pm
Anna Muylaert / Brazil / 112 min / 2015 / Portuguese with English subtitles
Val (stunningly performed by Regina Casé) is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employer's needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, whom she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val's estranged daughter Jessica suddenly shows up, the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray, and everyone is forced to reconsider what family really means.
