'Language Lessons' Is a Beautiful Story of Platonic Love at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on Sept. 9

Language Lessons (2021) - Official Trailer (HD)

Q&A immediately following screening with actor and co-writer Mark Duplass as well as director, actor and co-writer Natalie Morales.

A heartwarming story of a middle-aged California widower processing his grief through online Spanish classes with a young female teacher in Costa Rica. An unlikely relationship develops between Adam (Mark Duplass) and Cariño (Natalie Morales), despite many barriers.

Duplass shared the following on filming during a pandemic, "There is a part of me that has never really left my childhood living room, where … I built our filmmaking systems out of nothing. Where the struggle to come up with a way to make a movie... someway... anyway, was just as important as the film itself. And I miss that in my life. And making 'Language Lessons' really tapped back into that for me. Revitalized me in a way I didn’t even really know that I needed. So, yes, it's not easy when you have to light yourself and do your own sound and make sure your camera lens is clean and make sure everything is recording and put in a performance. But I wouldn't trade it. I loved it."

Immediately following the screening, Deadline's chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with actor and co-writer Mark Duplass ("The Morning Show," "Bombshell") and director, actor and co-writer Natalie Morales ("Dead to Me," "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse").

The film screens on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
