Aquarius ★★★½

A wonderful, nuanced central performance from Braga (whom I wasn't aware of before this). Arguably Oscar worthy. There aren't many roles like this, and she represents the age, emotions, sexuality and vulnerability of the character perfectly.

Sadly the conventional story behind her performance is thinner and required more sophistication in the script. A more impactful direction would have made this film more noticeable and probably found it a bigger audience. Braga deserved better support.
