Leto produkcije: 2014 Država: Brazilija Žanr: drama Režija: Fellipe Barbosa Scenarij: Karen Sztajnberg, Fellipe Barbosa Igrajo: Thales Cavalcanti, Marcello Novaes, Suzana Pires, Clarissa Pinheiro, Bruna Amaya 17-letni Jean s starši in mlajšo sestro živi v elitnem predelu Ria, kjer mladi obiskujejo zasebne šole, naokrog jih prevažajo družinski vozniki, doma pa za red skrbijo hišne pomočnice. Jean je v zadnjem letniku srednje šole in moral bi se odločiti, kaj bo študiral. A kaj ko mu dekleta, piljenje zunanjega videza in divje nočno življenje vzamejo toliko časa. Jean poskuša ubežati tudi vse preveč zaščitniškim staršem, zato se mu še sanja ne, da so se znašli v resnih finančnih težavah. Nad družino se začno zbirati temni oblaki in Jean se mora kmalu sprijazniti z dejstvom, da mu zaradi očetovega bankrota lagodno življenje med družbeno elito ne bo več dosegljivo. Prepričljivi prvenec, glasnik novega brazilskega vala, katerega kvalitete zelo dobro povzame izjava režiserja Barbose: ˝ Gre za izjemno oseben film, saj opisuje svet, v katerem sem odraščal in iz katerega sem poskušal ubežati. Moj poglavitni namen je bil povedati odlično zgodbo, z osredotočenostjo na like in razmerja med njimi, v okolju zelo specifičnega in pristnega sveta. Poleg najstniških naturščikov sem sodeloval z zvezdniki limonad, katerih podoba se navezuje na like iz filma. Prizadeval sem si za naturalizem v igri in formalno strogost. ˝ Lahko dodamo samo to, da so njegova prizadevanja obrodila sadove, saj je ustvaril intimno, delno avtobiografsko zgodbo o odraščanju, ki se prelevi v kritično obravnavo razrednih razlik in rasizma sodobne brazilske družbe.

Originalni opis filma:

Seventeen year old Caucasian high school senior Jean Cavalcanti, who attends a well regarded private boys' school, lives a relatively carefree life of moderate privilege in a security monitored and locked and gated big, custom built house in an affluent neighborhood in suburban Rio de Janeiro with his parents, Hugo and Sônia, fourteen year old sister Nathalie, and a houseful of servants including live-in maid Rita, black evangelical cook Noemia, and chauffeur Severino. Hugo and Sônia are too preoccupied with maintaining their upper middle class lifestyle to do much direct parenting with the exception of ensuring that Jean and Nat play their proper roles to the outside world, such as making sure that Jean gets into a good post-secondary program, something that Jean places little real effort. Not doing well on the college entrance exams may be a problem as the government has just implemented a quota system to balance the inherent disadvantages faced by non-Caucasians. Because of his parents' general neglect, Jean largely turns to the household staff instead of his parents, Severino, his chauffeur for his daily commute to/from the city to school, who initiates his first sexual experience with a prostitute. Jean is also able to sneak into Rita's room most nights on her teasing invitation to partake in foreplay and frank discussions of sex, although actual sex with him is a place she will not go. When Severino goes on vacation, Jean is forced to take public transit to school, a bus trip where he meets mixed race Luiza, who although not poor is not affluent like Jean's family. Although she is bright, Luiza admits that the quota system will benefit her and the basic inequalities she faces. The two begin to date. These issues in Jean's life are set against a backdrop of an issue of which he is unaware: that the hedge-fund Hugo managed has gone bust and thus he has lost his job. Hugo and Sônia do whatever they need to maintain their public façade of affluence - Severino who
