"A career-defining performance by the great Sônia Braga - weathered, proud, sensuous, fragile - captivates and brings us into her world."- Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice

Vitagraph Films presents AQUARIUS, from director Kleber Mendonça Filho ("Neighboring Sounds"), starring Sonia Braga ("Kiss of the Spider Woman"). In changing, oceanfront Recife, Brazil, Sonia Braga's 'Clara,' a vibrant, former music critic, is a force to be reckoned with when she defies corrupt real estate developers who are trying to harass her into selling her apartment so they can raze the building and put up a luxury condo tower. AQUARIUS is a portrait of modern Brazilian life in this story that touches on the preservation of history, community and lifestyle, politics, class, racial divides, sexuality, culture, family, the communication between generations and more - all set to a soundtrack that includes artists that range from Queen to Brazilian vocalist Roberto Carlos.

WINNER: International Cinephile Society Best Actress

Sydney Film Festival Best Film

Amsterdam Film Festival Grand Jury Prize

"A sensuous memory piece about the meanings we invest in places, objects, and music; and a lovingly tailored vehicle for the ever luminous Sonia Braga."—Dennis Lim, Artforum

“SONIA BRAGA IS STUPENDOUS IN AQUARIUS!...

Blazingly intelligent, funny, dignified, and sexy-as-hell”

-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“SONIA BRAGA IS A NATIONAL TREASURE”

-John Poers, Vogue
