Central Station (Central do Brasil) (1998)

Fernanda Montenegro's affecting performance, nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, is the centerpiece in this acclaimed Brazilian film. In the bustling heart of Rio de Janeiro, a young boy witnesses the accidental death of his mother. When a lonely, retired schoolteacher (Montenegro) reluctantly agrees to care for the boy, they begin a journey across the countryside on which they learn valuable lessons about each other and the human spirit.

"Director Walter Salles has created more than a road picture; he tells a poignant story about two characters and their destinies -- destinies that remain uncertain."
