    The Second Mother (Que horas Ela Volta?)

    Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper, is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers’ needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who 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. “The Second Mother is a satisfying contradiction. It's a soap opera with a social conscience that casually mixes dramatic elements about serious class issues with a crowd-pleasing audience picture sensibility.” - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

  • Trash


    While picking through a Rio de Janeiro trash dump looking for the small treasures that will earn him a dollar or two to get through the day, young orphan Raphael discovers a wallet stuffed not just with cash, but some highly cryptic symbols. When a major unit of the police force descends upon his favela in search of the wallet, Raphael knows he’s chanced upon something big, and with the help of his buddies launches an adventure to unearth the secret that the powerful elite wishes to crush. Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader) excels at creating fully-rounded heroes with pride and determination to follow their hearts. “Director Stephen Daldry rediscovers the upbeat oomph that powered his debut feature Billy Elliot… His tale of Rio street kids has grit, humor and outstanding performances from its young cast.” - Mark Kermode, The Guardian [UK]

    Pawn Sacrifice (Subtitulada en español)

    In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges Soviet World Champion Boris Spassky (a terrific Liev Schreiber) in the greatest chess match ever played. On the board he fought the Cold War. In his mind he fought his madness. Pawn Sacrifice chronicles the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world. “Whether you know nothing about the game, or you are a grand master, the story of Bobby Fischer's rise to the world championship has all the suspense and intrigue of an espionage thriller that takes its idiom from the best visual tension that Hitchcock had to offer.” - Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
