Three Summers

December 03 - 09, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 20/21 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

Brazilian acting legend Regina Casé stars as the plucky, resourceful housekeeper in a buoyant social satire that unfolds over three summer Christmases in Rio.

20/21 Hop Film

Striking an irresistible balance of naïveté and cleverness, Regina Casé (The Second Mother) delivers one of her most charismatic performances yet as Madá, an intrepid caretaker trying to carve out her own slice of happiness. 

With tenacious optimism, Madá rolls with the punches no matter what her condescending employers throw at her over the course of three consecutive Christmases (summertime in Brazil) at their luxury beachside condo. She invests in a roadside snack kiosk while serving as den mother for the other workers, becomes a bystander in a major money-laundering scandal (based on real events), and eventually launches a whole new career. With every dizzying new turn of events, Madá manages to retain her high spirits, her sense of loyalty to those who deserve it — and her eagle eye for opportunity.  D: Sandra Kogut, Brazil, subtitled, 2019, 1h34m
