Fernanda Montenegro was Oscar-nominated for her performance as the cynical, cheating Dora, a retired teacher who reluctantly helps a homeless boy search for the father he’s never known – and rediscovers her humanity in the process. Salles’ influential third feature is a deeply affecting road movie through which, as his odd couple travel from Rio into the Brazilian hinterland, the director explores a country shaken by years of adversity.
