Movie Info

Chela and Chiquita, both descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years. But recently their financial situation has worsened and they begin selling off their inherited possessions. But when their debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality. Driving for the first time in years, she begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies. As Chela settles into her new life, she encounters the much younger Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating new connection. Chela finally begins to break out of her shell and engage with the world, embarking on her own personal, intimate revolution.

It is in the unspoken where The Heiresses is its most powerful.

Jan 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

"The Heiresses" almost subliminally alerts you to complexities of sexuality and status that many films would prefer to simplify. It also draws you into a social milieu that is both highly specific and intuitively accessible.

The entire movie feels muddled, especially in its effort to fashion a gets-her-groove-back narrative from financial ruin.

"The Heiresses" is the kind of story Hollywood doesn't tell anymore; a 50-something woman daring to rekindle her lost spirit of discovery.

Jun 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Builds emotional involvement by infinitesimal degrees through its acute observation of characters and social context and its ultra-naturalistic performances.

Feb 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Using largely unknown actresses with practically no screen experience yet an extraordinarily canny understanding of character, the director-writer achieves a heightened degree of insight within the confines of a stripped-down production.
