LANGUAGE LESSONS

WINNER – 2021 SXSW FILM FESTIVAL – Audience Award
SPECIAL PRESENTATION – 2021 BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2021 BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL

Directed by Natalie Morales and written in collaboration with her co-star Mark Duplass, this charming and award-winning comedy follows a Spanish teacher and her student whose online connection takes on far more importance than either could have anticipated.

For his 45th birthday, wealthy Californian Adam (Duplass) receives a surprise gift from his choreographer partner: 100 weekly Spanish lessons with Cariño (Morales), a vivacious expat who teaches virtually from her home in Costa Rica. Adam’s unconvinced at first; a self-described “creature-of-habit”, he’s unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his carefully-structured routine. But after unexpected events turn his life upside down, Cariño becomes a lifeline he didn’t know he needed, and a complicated emotional bond develops…

Upending classic meet-cute tropes, this clever and unassuming film effortlessly shifts between comedy and pathos, echoing the ups and downs of life. Bittersweet, honest and fresh, LANGUAGE LESSONS is a disarmingly moving exploration of friendship and connection.
