Movie synopsis: It’s 1951, and celebrated American poet Elizabeth Bishop arrives by boat in Rio de Janeiro to visit her college friend Mary and her partner Lota at their country residence. Shy, introverted Elizabeth is initially overwhelmed by the Brazilian spontaneity and way of life. She is the complete opposite of the energetic, assertive and unconventional architect, Lota de Macedo Soares, who openly acts on the instant attraction between them. The romantic drama beautifully depicts the tempestuous, yet long-lasting love affair of two great artists living outside of the social norms, and benefits from stunning performances by elegant Miranda Otto and acclaimed Brazilian diva, Gloria Pires.
