We were lucky to meet Melissa Barrera (@MelissaBarreraM) just as she was graduating NYU. With one foot in Brecht and another in telenovelas she totally got our style. Melissa’s star has risen crazy rapidly ever since, which everybody saw coming. Last week some of fans contacted asking us to see clips of her in L FOR LEISURE, so here you go guys!

Cinética | L for Leisure, de Lev Kalman e Whitney Horn (EUA/França/México/Islândia, 2014) 

We’re probably not the best judges, especially as we’re basing this on a Google Translate of the Portuguese, but - we’re pretty sure this review is beautiful and totally on point.
