Synopsis

Paulina García (who rose to international fame in Sebastián Lelio’s Gloria) plays a quiet, middle-aged Chilean maid, Teresa, who has spent her entire adult life caring for someone else's family, sublimating her own maternal desire into devotion to their now grown-up son. When she is harshly let go after her employers experience a financial crisis, Teresa’s life is completely upended, and she is forced to travel across the spectacular Argentinian hinterlands in search of work. With the grace and economy of a satisfying novella, The Desert Bride handles complex themes with maturity, and affectingly delivers further proof that Garcia is one of the most remarkable actresses in world cinema.
