Dir. Fellipe Barboso
Exploring issues of class privilege among Rio’s decadent elite, Casa Grande depicts a teenage boy’s struggle to escape his overprotective parents as they covertly spiral into bankruptcy.
Casa Grande renders a sharp social canvas of contemporary Brazil through the eyes of young Jean (Thales Cavalcanti), who struggles with newfound knowledge of his racial and class privilege as he sweetly courts a mixed-race girl from a lower-ranked school than his, and flirts with the family’s maid. Jean’s parents, meanwhile, clutch at straws merely to survive. His father (Brazilian screen staple Marcello Novaes), a failed hedge-fund baron, tries vainly to conceal the true extent of the damage, as his formerly sheltered wife resorts to peddling cosmetics.
“A confident and quietly promising feature debut” – The Hollywood Reporter
“A well-deserved study of a wealthy Brazilian family’s breakdown” – Variety
“This isn’t the first Latin American drama to follow a rich family on a downward spiral, but the eloquent visuals, strong central performance, and empathetic humor push it to the forefront.” – Nicolas Rapold, Film Comment Magazine
