Screening of Brazilian film 'A Casa de Alice', directed by Chico Teixeira
Wednesday, February 04, 2009 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM James Bridges Theatre Melnitz Hall 1409 Los Angeles, CA United States
In a São Paulo working-class district, a 40-something-year-old manicurist gets by the best she can with her life and family.
Alice's House is a refreshing look at Brazil, with an innovative and intelligent portrayal of an urban middle class Brazilian family. It is a script that deals with the life of a great number of Brazilians so rarely seen on cinema screens. In many ways, it is the portrait of an urban middle class found around the world: the day-to-day life of common people shown with depth and perception, centered in human feelings and flaws. Particularly compelling is the performance of actress Carla Ribas, who won awards for Best Actress in numerous festivals in Brazil and abroad.
