The highly anticipated new film from Pedro Costa follows Vitalina, a 55-year-old Cape Verdean, as she arrives in Lisbon three days after her husband’s funeral. She has been waiting for her plane ticket for more than 25 years and now gets to uncover the scanty, physical traces he left behind, revealing a secret life. Eric Kohn of Indiewire called the film “a ravishing, masterful vision. Transcendent. Gorgeous,” full of “stunning compositions with such delicate palettes they may as well be Renaissance paintings brought to life.” In Portuguese with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including violence and sexual situations.
