New Trailer for the Brazilian Fable ‘Good Manners’ Packs Romance, Thrills, and Werewolves

Written by on July 18, 2018 


If it wasn’t for a certain action blockbuster, the Brazilian lesbian werewolf horror melodrama Good Manners (which also throws in a musical element as well) would’ve topped our list of the must-see films of the month. One of the best movies I saw at New Directors/New Films earlier this year, Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas’s fable will be arriving in just over a week, and now Distrib Films US have debuted a new trailer, featuring one of our quotes.

The São Paulo-set film, gorgeously shot by Zama cinematographer Rui Poças, follows a nurse living outside the city who is hired to be the nanny for a wealthy woman who is about to give birth, and, of course, many secrets await. “Contrasts abound in Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra’s terrifyingly captivating Good Manners, a horror-meets-children’s-movie that uses all the tropes at its disposal to conjure up a piercing discussion of class, race, and desire in present-day Brazil,” Leonardo Goi said in his review out of ND/NF.

Good Manners opens on Friday, July 27 at the IFC Center in New York City, followed by an LA opening on August 17 at the Laemmle Royal Theatre, and additional cities. See the new trailer and poster below.

When lonely nurse Clara is hired as a nanny by wealthy Ana, she hardly expects anything like the friendship she finds with the lonely, pregnant woman. However, both women have dark secrets which will engulf all that they hold dear.
