Nise: The Heart of Madness

This Brazilian biopic introduces audiences to Dr. Nise da Silveira, one of the first women in her country to ever study medicine. Legendary Brazilian TV actress Glória Pires (in the biz since 1968) stars as the compassionate caregiver who, in 1940s Rio de Janeiro, refuses to use new and violent electroshock treatments at the psychiatric hospital where she is employed. Instead, she develops her own treatment program using paint, dogs and love. In Portuguese with English subtitles. 106 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 6/23)
