Storyline

Seventeen year old Caucasian high school senior Jean Cavalcanti, who attends a well regarded private boys' school, lives a relatively carefree life of moderate privilege in a security monitored and locked and gated big, custom built house in an affluent neighborhood in suburban Rio de Janeiro with his parents, Hugo and Sônia, fourteen year old sister Nathalie, and a houseful of servants including live-in maid Rita, black evangelical cook Noemia, and chauffeur Severino. Hugo and Sônia are too preoccupied with maintaining their upper middle class lifestyle to do much direct parenting with the exception of ensuring that Jean and Nat play their proper roles to the outside world, such as making sure that Jean gets into a good post-secondary program, something that Jean places little real effort.

My Own Prison.
28 September 2017 | by Howlin WolfSee all my reviews

The Big House is a prison of status. You'll do anything to keep up appearances, even as everything is falling apart.

Rich people generally want the rules of social mobility to stay the same; they want to be able to keep their wealth, but they don't want the aspirational to have a chance at the same lifestyle...

Money can paper over the cracks in a family for awhile - but if the money should disappear, then so does the polite facade.
