When Adam's (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he's unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his well-structured life. However, when an unexpected tragedy turns his life upside down, Adam decides to carry on with the lessons and develops a complicated emotional bond with his Spanish teacher, Carino (Natalie Morales). But do you really know someone just because you've experienced a traumatic moment with them?
A tight-knit production team is behind this clever film that revisits the classic set-up of an unlikely friendship between a woman and a man. Bittersweet, honest and at times darkly funny, Language Lessons is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love.
