“An engaging and deeply satisfying picture about the adjustments that come with ageing, particularly the fear of being jostled out of place as the culture moves on.” – Time

Winner of Best Film Award at Sydney Film Festival 2016

For retired music critic Clara (Sonia Braga), the beachside Aquarius building is her home: it’s where her children grew up, her marriage played out, and the bulk of her past and present glories have taken place. For the property developers that have convinced her neighbours to sell up, it’s an ageing relic earmarked for demolition to make way for a brighter future.

Aquarius is a deeply felt catalogue of Clara’s life and her steadfast determination to hold on to the apartment at its centre, charting along the way the changes slowly creeping through Brazil’s vibrant and varied middle class. Infused with emotional depth, psychological insights and political relevance, Aquarius proves part character study and part social commentary, as aided by a rich, textured performance by Braga in career-topping form.
