Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


Paraguay | 2018 | Marcelo Martinessi

THE HEIRESSES film still

Two women from wealthy families who have lived together in a same-sex relationship for over 30 years suddenly find their comfortable existence threatened by debt. Despite selling off inherited possessions for cash, one of them goes to jail while the other is forced to work as a driver for wealthy Asunción ladies. But this leads to new beginnings. This astute, acclaimed take on class, privilege, age, and latent sexual desire was Paraguay’s submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Subtitles. DCP. 98 min.
