Brazilian drama film to screen

MARYBOROUGH Regional Arts Council's Cinema Club will screen Portuguese film The Second Mother later this month.

The Second Mother is a 2015 Brazilian drama film with English sub-titles.

The film stars Regina Case as Val, the housemaid of a wealthy family in Sao Paulo, and portrays the tensions that arise after her daughter Jessica moves into the family house in order to apply for an admission exam at the University of Sao Paulo.

It premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was later released theatrically in Brazil in August 2015.

Critic's consensus: The Second Mother's compelling characters serve an artfully drawn, thought-provoking story that's beautifully brought to life by a talented cast.

The Second Mother will be screened on September 14 from 6.30pm in the Federation Room, Brolga Theatre, 5 Walker St, Maryborough.

Tickets are $10 members and $12 non-members and include refreshments.
