Although 2020 will not be known as a year for making connections with strangers, Language Lessons shows that despite social isolation there is always an opportunity for love to grow.
Adam (Mark Duplass) has been gifted Spanish lessons from his husband, Will. As he begins his first online lesson with Cariño (Natalie Morales), the two instantly hit it off—friends behind a computer screen, learning Spanish. But when the second lesson begins with Adam sharing news that he has suffered a tragic loss, the relationship between teacher and student deepens, and what were once lessons in a foreign language become lessons about love and loss, and how to open ourselves up to both.
Natalie Morales explores platonic love masterfully, demonstrating that no matter how hopeless, isolated or distant we are, finding love and friendship is always possible.
