Language Lessons

“As a performer, Morales is laughably smart, sympathetic, and engaging, and what’s so clever about ‘Language Lessons’ is the deployment of that allure … Can we truly get the measure of those whom we meet online? Are we like physicians who give their patients diagnoses without examining them in the flesh?”

– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker


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.
