Synopsis:

Friday, January 25 – Thursday, January 31

ALICE'S HOUSE

Chico Teixeira’s multi-award winning first feature about contemporary life in Brazil stars the luminous Carla Ribas as Alice, a middle-aged manicurist living in São Paulo who has to overcome obstacles caused by the male-dominated world she finds herself trapped in. Living with her three sons, her aging mother and her philandering husband, Alice’s future seems mundane until she has a chance meeting with an old flame that forces her to re-examine her life. Filled with profound insights about family, relationships and trust, Alice’s House is a surprising revelation in Brazilian cinema. Ribas is winner of four awards for Best Actress—from the Miami, Guadalajara, Rio de Janeiro and Lisbon film festivals. (Brazil, 2007)
