Natalie Morales directs, stars, and cowrote SPANISH LESSONS with her costar Mark Duplass. A new trailer has dropped along with a new poster for the film that was obviously shot over the pandemic.
Morales plays a hired Spanish-language tutor for Duplass' Adam who she ends up helping in other ways when he goes through a life crisis.
The film garnered the SXSW Narrative Spotlight Audience Award and the Provincetown Best Narrative Film Audience Award. SPANISH LESSONS is Morales's second feature film after making PLAN B.
SPANISH LESSON opens in movie theaters on September 10.
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.
