Just this year, comedian/actress Natalie Morales made her feature-length film directorial debut with the teen comedy Plan B, which proved to be a critical hit, leaving many to wonder when her next directorial effort would release. Thankfully, it’s not too far away.
The trailer for Morales’ next film which she wrote and directed, Language Lessons, has officially been released. The film stars Morales, Mark Duplass, Desean Terry, and Christina Quesada, and was produced by Mel Elsyn. Back at SXSW, Joey really liked it, as his festival review here explained. In fact, he’s even quoted in this trailer.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
“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 already structured life. But when tragedy strikes, his Spanish teacher, Cariño (Natalie Morales), becomes a lifeline he didn’t know he needed. Adam develops an unexpected and complicated emotional bond with Cariño—but do you really know someone just because you’ve experienced a traumatic moment with them?”
