Language Lessons

Bittersweet, honest, and at times darkly funny, the new dramedy feature Language Lessons is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love. When Adam’s (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he’s unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his already structured life. But when tragedy strikes, his Spanish teacher Cariño (Natalie Morales) becomes a lifeline he didn’t know he needed. Adam develops an unexpected and complicated emotional bond with Cariño—but do you really know someone just because you’ve experienced a traumatic moment with them?

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"Zoom fatigue may be real, but Language Lessons ventures to show how true connection can come at any time, and through any medium, barriers be damned."
Kate Erbland, indieWire
