The Museum of Modern Art in New York City has announced the one-week theatrical run of the Brazilian film Once Upon a Time Veronica / Era uma vez eu, Verônica (pictured) by Marcelo Gomes, which will play September 8-14
A finely tuned, emotionally raw portrait of a woman's conflicted entry into adulthood, Once Upon a Time Veronica is a thoroughly modern anti–fairy tale.
Director Gomes shows a rare ability to get under the skin—and cut close to the bone—of his emotionally vulnerable but resilient main character. Anchored by a tour de force performance from the fearless Hermila Guedes, this sensual, psychologically complex character study charts the personal and professional growth of one young woman in Recife. The film also stars Maeve Jinkings and João Miguel.
The film is released in the U.S. by Big World Pictures.
