The Heiresses (12A)
Here is an intriguing, memorable and very powerful film. Chela and Chiquita have been together for over 30 years. But recently their financial situation has worsened and they begin selling off possessions.
When Chiquita is imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality. She begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies.
Meeting the young and free spirited Angy and making a connection with her, she finally begins to break out of her shell and engage with the world. It's a performance of tragicomic genius that plays out in arched eyebrows and stabbing side-eye swipes at other women. Terrific.
