The VITO Project presents Good Manners (2017) event postponed

Sun 29 Mar 2020 @ 18:30 · Events

Good Manners ReShape and the Cinema Museum are proud to present the 2020 season of The VITO Project, a series of monthly screenings of queer cinema, bringing generations of LGBT+ people and friends together for an alternative space to mix, watch great films and share ideas.

Good Manners (As Boas Maneiras) (2017) is an affecting and magical fairy tale, one of the most interesting movies to come from Brazil in past years. Defying genre definitions and narrative conventions, it succeeds as a social drama, as a compelling love story and as a parable about motherhood. With its unexpected twists, this is one of those movies in which one should know as little as possible about the plot. You have been warned… Clara, a lonely nurse from the outskirts of São Paulo, is hired by mysterious and wealthy Ana as the nanny for her unborn child. The two women develop a strong bond, but a fateful night changes their plans.

Despite being a film festival favourite, with 25 awards from multiple festivals under its belt including the Special Jury Price in Locarno 2017, Good Manners has yet to secure a distributor in the UK. This is a rare and special opportunity to see the movie on the big screen.
