Mark Duplass and Natalie Morales star in heartwarming new drama at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (August 30, 2021) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the award-winning new film “Language Lessons” showing Sept. 10-15 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The award-winning collaboration between Natalie Morales and Mark Duplass is a heartwarming exploration of long-distance friendship. “Language Lessons” won the SXSW Narrative Spotlight Audience Award and the Provincetown Best Narrative Film Audience Award, among others.
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?
Bittersweet, honest, and at times darkly funny, “Language Lessons” is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love.
“A film graced with charm and genuine heart.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Morales and Duplass both infuse their characters with such emotional honesty.” – Indiewire
“A rare and preceptive film about the formation of a friendship with the push-pull dynamics of a romantic comedy.” – Variety
