Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands
DOWNING FILM CENTER - DONA FLOR & HER TWO HUSBANDS • Classics, Comedy
Based on the novel by Jorge Amado, this Golden Globe and BAFTA-nominated comedy follows the strange events that befall Dona Flor (Sonia Braga) after she is left a widow by the death of her wild, irresponsible husband. Shortly after remarrying, she finds her new, less-than-satisfying sex life revived when the ghost of her late husband unexpectedly returns.
Newly restored, the “marvelously funny” (Time Magazine) DONA FLOR AND HER TWO HUSBANDS was an instant international hit, launching the career of the “bewitchingly beautiful” (People) Sonia Braga and becoming (at the time) Brazil's highest grossing box office feature.
DIRECTED BY BRUNO BARRETO
