Reaching for the Moon

Flores Raras


It is 1951. New York poet Elizabeth Bishop travels to Brazil and encounters beguiling architect Lota de Macedo Soares. Initial hostilities between the pair make way for a complicated yet long-lasting love affair that dramatically alters Bishop’s relationship to the world around her.

MUBI's take

The poet Elizabeth Bishop kept her love life very private during her lifetime, which makes this biopic all the more important–and exciting! A poignant portrait of her passionate romance, it includes excerpts from her subtle yet stirring poetry and sumptuous Brazilian modernist architecture.
