EDUARDO AND MÔNICA / EDUARDO E MÔNICA
A film by René Sampaio
(Brazil, 2020, 114 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles)
With Alice Braga and Gabriel Leone
Inspired by the characters Eduardo and Mônica, popularized by the hit song composed by Brazilian rock legend Renato Russo, Sampaio’s feature is a timeless and irresistible romantic comedy set in Brasilia in the mid-1980s. Braga (Queen of the South, City of God) and Leone star as the unlikely couple, a bohemian medical student and a goofy soap opera-loving high schooler, who must overcome seemingly unbridgeable differences for their love to survive.
