The Heiresses (12A)
Director Marcelo Martinessi, Paraguay, 2018, 1hr 38mins, subtitles
With Ana Brun, Margarita Irún, Ana Ivanova
Descended from wealthy Paraguayan families, Chela and Chiquita find quite different solutions to falling on hard times. While Chiquita is imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela provides a local taxi service for elderly wealthy ladies.
We’ve all seen films about old people who experience a poignant late-life flowering. But not many about a well-off lady in Paraguay whose love life comes into its own only after her gay lover is sent to jail. A sophisticated, riveting yet touching story that combines stately drama with sweet and enjoyable humour.
