Spanish Film Festival – Language Lessons Movie Review

With so many people relying on zoom for their daily office interface who would have thought that technology could be used for something so entertaining? Language Lessons turns the computer call upside down and creates something remarkably enlightening.

Adam (Mark Duplass) receives a present from his husband for 100 Spanish lessons. They are to be delivered remotely by Cariño (Natalie Morales). Adam lives the life of luxury in the United States while Cariño has to ply her trade remotely from Costa Rica. Through circumstance, they become much more than teacher and student.



Underlined by some very serious themes, the film is a joy to behold and its emotional ride, while not always easy is tremendously satisfying. It’s a great introduction to this year’s Moro Spanish Film Festival. Language Lessons is a Festival Special presentation.
