GLORIA AND GRACEGloria e Graça
directed by Flávio R. Tambellini
Flávio R. Tambellini; 2016; Brazil; 94 min.; in Portuguese with English subtitles
Identity and destiny intersect in this melodrama about a dying woman reconnecting with her estranged sibling. Time and memory are the subjects of the visual leitmotif that features a surfeit of reflective images, suggesting the trajectories of two women grappling with life. Colorful and robust, GLORIA AND GRACE unflinchingly chronicles the struggles of a transgender woman finding herself transitioning once again, but this time away from the life of rugged independence to which she is accustomed, to one of family and nurturing.
