Casa Grande - trailer

Precariously balanced social structures maintaining class, race and expectations come crashing down in “Casa grande,” Fellipe Barbosa’s well-made feature debut, which dissects a privileged family’s struggle to maintain their lifestyle in an affluent Rio neighborhood. Largely focusing on a high-school senior unaware that his father is deeply in debt, the pic is full of nicely observed vignettes that act as signifiers of caste, though at times the script turns overly didactic. With a strong ensemble cast whose interplay captures the hierarchy of master and servant, “Casa grande” should appeal to fests with an understanding of Brazilian cinema beyond the favelas.
