Three Summers

PG 94 MIN
Watch Trailer

Synopsis

Unfolding over the course of three consecutive summers - 2015 to 2017 - the film follows Madá, a fifty-something caretaker for a cluster of luxury beach-side condos owned by a wealthy Rio de Janeiro family, as she invests in a roadside snack kiosk while tending to the every need of her condescending employers, becomes a bystander in a major money-laundering scandal, and eventually launches a whole new career. With every dizzying new turn of events, Madá manages to retain her high spirits, her sense of loyalty to those who deserve it - and her eagle eye for opportunity.

Reviews

"[Kogut] displays a keen eye for satirizing Brazil's rigid class structures and how people like Mada try to find their own piece of the pie within them."

- HOLLYWOOD REPORTER


"Three Summers charts the progressive chronology of a working-class rebellion, spearheaded by a charismatic domestic employee whose constant yet feigned state of happiness belies a great personal trauma."

- CINEUROPA


"[Kogut]'s approach is methodical, her camera patient, as the cycle of life repeats and goes on despite an environment of fragility and decline."
