Among the October 2022 releases, Telecine presents “A Viagem de Pedro”, a national film recently released in theaters, in the year in which the bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil is celebrated. Filmmaker Laís Bodanzky (“Bicho de Sete Cabeças”, “Como Nosso Pais”) addresses in her first historical work important issues of gender and race, and the private life of Dom Pedro I, played by Cauã Reymond, who is also a producer of the long. Formed by a large cast, the film also features Rita Wainer, Welket Bunguê, Victória Guerra, Isac Graça, Isabél Zuaa and Sergio Laurentino.
Also premiering in October on Telecine is the thriller “The Letter Counter”, by filmmaker Paul Schrader (“American Gigolo”, “Corrupted Faith”). The production stars Oscar Isaac, who plays William Tell, an ex-military and interrogator who becomes a professional card player as ghosts from his past come to light. Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan and Willem Dafoe complete the cast of the feature that competed for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
And to get in the mood for Halloween, celebrated on October 31, one of the horror sub-genres with the most franchises and fans, the slasher, also has space among the October releases on Telecine. Unprecedented in Brazilian cinemas, “They/Them – o Acampamento” is set in a conversion therapy camp for LGBTQIA+ youth, led by Owen (Kevin Bacon). If the situation was already unreasonable and full of psychological torture, it gets even more macabre when a mysterious murderer begins to claim victims on the spot. Actress Anna Chlumsky, best remembered for the 90s classic “My First Love”, is also in the cast. The film marks the directorial debut of screenwriter John Logan, nominated for Oscars for “Gladiator”, “The Aviator” and “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”.
October is also Children’s Day month, celebrated on October 12. And another highlight of the Telecine releases is “Sonic 2: o Filme”, bringing even more elements and references from the universe of the famous blue hedgehog of video games. In the new adventure, Sonic wants to become a real hero and, for that, he has to face Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). While the villain has the help of Knuckles (voiced by Idris Elba), Sonic repeats the partnership of the games with Tails (voice of Colleen O’Shaughnessey). Filled with visual effects, action and humor, the film promises to unite generations.
There is also: the romantic adventure “Lost City”, by brothers Aaron and Adam Nee, starring Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe, Da’vine Joy Randolph and Brad Pitt, in a cameo; and “The Last Night,” a comedy-drama directed by Camille Griffin and starring Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode and Roman Griffin Davis;
