In honor of the diversity of films from around the world and in homage to the indispensable Cinema 10 series of Potsdam, the Department of World Languages, Cultures & Media, and the Language Resource Center are pleased to present:
Language Lessons (2021)
When Adam's (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he's unsure 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 know someone just because you've experienced a traumatic moment with them?
Bittersweet, honest, and sometimes darkly funny, Language Lessons is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love.
