On an estate in the Brazilian countryside, an upper middle class family gathers to celebrate New Year’s Day, 2003. Politics seems very far away, even though it’s the dawn of a new era: Lula, the politician who rose from the working class to be elected president of Brazil, is just assuming leadership of the country. But this is on everybody’s mind, even if they are not talking about it.

Laura, the imposing matriarch, presides over the boisterous company of her two adult sons, spouses, grandchildren, friends of the family, a hunky tennis coach, groundskeepers and kitchen staff. As in any big family, cheerful laughter and alcohol-fueled tension go hand-in-hand, and the particular carnality of the Brazilian culture provides a heightened sense of arousal to the proceedings. A big holiday allows everyone a chance to reflect on their joys and disappointments in life, including the family’s hired help, startled into a new consciousness by Lula’s unexpected ascendancy.

Equal parts family and political drama, Domingo is a great reflection on transition and change, all the while taking a sly and subtle look into the classism of Brazilian society.
