Via Brasil Fil Series: Hour of the Star |
Based on the ruthless novella by Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector, the wildly acclaimed Hour of the Star introduces us to Macabˇa, a poor peasant girl from rural Brazil who heads to S‹o Paulo for work after her auntÕs death. Saddled with a troubled job and even more troubled relationship, Macabˇa eventually discovers that even the most outlandish dreams can come true.
This winner of the Berlin International Film FestivalÕs Best Actress Award (for Marcelia CartazoÕs unforgettable portrayal of Macabˇa) was one of the most critically lauded Brazilian films of the 1980s, capturing rave reviews from star critics Pauline Kael and Andrew Sarris. (96 mins., 35mm)
