Meetup Description: Alice's House (2007)
Directed by Chico Teixeira
Subtitles in Portuguese

Alice, married for the last 20 years to a taxi driver, works in a beauty parlour, has three children, the eldest of whom is doing his military service, and a mother who works as a maid in her house. None of the three siblings pay much attention to their mother, and they treat their grandmother with lack of respect. Alice's life in the female working world contrasts strongly with the powerful masculine presence in her home. Although she's a good girl, the chance to betray uncovers other betrayals she didn't know existed.

Alice's House is a refreshing look at Brazil, with an innovative and intelligent portrayal of an urban middle class Brazilian family. It is a script that deals with the life of a great number of Brazilians so rarely seen on cinema screens. In many ways, it is the portrait of an urban middle class found around the world: the day-to-day life of common people shown with depth and perception, centered in human feelings and flaws. Particularly compelling is the performance of actress Carla Ribas, who won awards for Best Actress in numerous festivals in Brazil and abroad.
