ISABELLA (2020)

The latest in Argentine filmmaker Matías Piñeiro's (HERMIA & HELENA, THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE, VIOLA) series of films inspired by the women of Shakespeare's comedies follows Mariel (María Villar, HERMIA & HELENA, LA FLOR, THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE, VIOLA), a young actress who dreams of playing the role of Isabella in a local theater troupe's production of Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure." When dire financial straits prevent her from preparing for the audition, she approaches her brother's girlfriend, Luciana (Agustina Muñoz, HERMIA & HELENA, THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE, VIOLA) — also an actress — to enlist Luciana's help in asking her brother for the money she needs to continue pursuing the role. Through their rich and layered performances, Muñoz and Villar demonstrate a profound intimacy formed over more than a decade of collaboration with Piñeiro. ISABELLA is a film about the ongoing battle between doubt and ambition that never discounts the possibility of a new beginning. (Note Adapted from Cinema Guild.)
