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. However, when tragedy strikes, his teacher (Natalie Morales) becomes a lifeline he didn't know he needed. Directed by Natalie Morales.


Review by Caitlin Stow
Many filmmakers have made “pandemic movies” over the last two years - movies made over Zoom, or cleverly distanced. What sets this apart is that it is not a pandemic movie. Yes, it was made safely during Covid, but the story is not about disease or using video technology as an unfortunate necessity, instead Duplass and Morales celebrate our ability to heal one another, even from countries apart. A cute, cozy, heartbreaking love story, which uses a second language to facilitate an open bluntness not offered through our first languages alone. Its simplicity and limitations melt into the background as you get to know these two lovely people, and suddenly it’s not a “pandemic movie,” it’s an intimate indie darling - using all the tools at its disposal to celebrate human connection.
