ONCE UPON A TIME VERONICA [Era uma vez eu, Verônica]

Veronica is a young woman in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. Fresh out of med school, she lives with her ailing father in the coastal town of Recife and finds out the hard way that adult life isn't all that it's cracked up to be. But between struggling with her patients and taking care of her father, she still manages to let loose, hang with her girlfriends and indulge in some casually mind-blowing sex. "Strikingly impressive on every level, Marcelo Gomes' snapshot of modern urban life–as seen through the sharp eyes of a Brazilian woman–is one of the year's best South American films."–Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter. Special Mention, Horizontes Section, 2012 San Sebastian Film Festival. Official Selection 2012 Toronto Film Festival.
