Alice's House

2007 NR

Manicurist Alice (Carla Ribas) is the dutiful center of a crowded Sao Paolo apartment that includes her oafish cabbie husband (Zecarlos Machado), her put-upon mother (Berta Zemel) and her three sons. Life's tiny dramas rule the home until an innocent flirtation yields huge consequences. Brazilian director Chico Teixeira's affecting first feature was an official selection at the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival.
