Watch: Trailer for Sundance Winner ‘The Second Mother’

Oscilloscope Laboratories has released the first U.S. trailer for writer-director Anna Muylaert’s “The Second Mother.”

The Brazilian film won a special jury award for acting in the world cinema competition for its two stars, Regina Case and Camila Mardila. “The Second Mother” also nabbed the Panorama audience award at the Berlin Film Festival.

Oscilloscope bought U.S. rights to the pic during the latter festival.

“The Second Mother” — titled “Que Horas Ela Volta?” in Portuguese — centers around a hard-working live-in housekeeper, played by Case, in Sao Paulo. When her estranged daughter (Mardila) suddenly appears, the unspoken class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray.

“This is the sort of savvy, socially conscious crowdpleaser that occupies a rare middle ground between genteel and intellectual world cinema,” Variety’s Geoff Berkshire wrote in his review.

The film hits theaters on August 28.
