Isadora and Enrique, an elderly couple, live a comfortable life with their two ample cats in a handsome high-rise apartment overlooking the park. Isadora is struggling with a bout of dementia when her daughter, Rosario, and her butch female lover, Hugo, drop in for a coked-up visit to pitch their latest get-rich scheme—and attempt to snatch the flat right out from under Isadora. Then Isadora does something quite unexpected for a woman with a busted hip, and everything changes.
Drawing pitch-perfect performances from a brilliant cast, Silva and Peirano have crafted a splendid film filled with the pathos and black humor found in treacherous mother-daughter relationships. Old Cats points a way to how empathy may lead to survivable neutral ground.
The screening of Old Cats is sponsored by Mejias Milgrim Alvarado, P.C.
