Casa Grande

Rated NR 107 min. 2015

Coming-of-age as rude awakening: one high school senior's dawning sexuality is shadowed by the discovery of his upper-class family's looming financial ruin. Polished and penetrating, Casa Grande renders a sharp social canvas of contemporary Brazil through the eyes of young Jean, who struggles with newfound knowledge of his racial and class privilege even as his parents, a failed hedge-fund baron and his sheltered wife, grasp at straws merely to survive.
