Casa Grande

Casa Grande

As a privileged teenager living in an affluent suburb of Rio de Janeiro, Jean has little to worry about beyond games, grades and girls. But as his overbearing father drags the family into debt, Jean is forced into a change of lifestyle which opens his eyes to the world beyond his ‘casa grande’ – not least that of the feisty, mixed-race firecracker Luiza. Cultures, classes and generations collide in this engrossing coming-of-age drama from Brazil.

The Sad Cafe brings to life the gritty world where cause and effect, life and death, love and hatred play out a delicate balance.

The Sad Cafe is, at its core, a love story…a romance tragic in all aspects. A testimony to the pain people endure in their pursuit for love and companionship. “…intense and impressive … a compelling story of love and crime… [with]…crackling moments of gore and action…” Ain’t It Cool News “…must be seen … a dynamic action thriller from visionary young director Bennie Woodell…” Wildside Cinema
