Sonia Braga enters the Oscar race with “Aquarius”

by Chris Narloch

If you want to see the sort of acting that wins praise from critics and gets an actor on the short list of potential Oscar nominees, then you should check out a terrific Brazilian drama now playing at Sacramento’s Tower Theatre.

In “Aquarius,” the great Brazilian actress Sonia Braga (“Kiss of the Spiderwoman”) plays Clara, a proud 65-year-old widow and music critic, who was born into a wealthy and traditional family in Recife, Brazil.

We Will Overcome - A Personal Response to the Election

by Toom Moon, MFT, The Examined Life
