A sophisticated tale of an unlikely romance between two extraordinary artists, set against the backdrop of political upheaval and a clash of cultures in 1950s Brazil. Legendary American poet Elizabeth Bishop travels from New York City to Rio de Janeiro to visit her college friend Mary. Hoping to find inspiration, Elizabeth winds up with much more – a tempestuous relationship with Mary's bohemian partner, architect Lota de Macedo Soares, designer of Rio's Flamingo Park.

Thanks to Peccadillo


The passionate romance springs to life thanks to full-bodied performances by Gloria Pires and Miranda Otto.
