Pierre plays guitar in a punk band, wears eyeliner, and is content to have sex with both boys and girls. He gets along with his mother and sister, who let him do as he likes—his life is pretty good. That is, until police arrive at his house to arrest his mother, and Pierre learns that he was stolen at birth. Forced to live with his wealthy, biological parents, Pierre cultivates subtle and not-so-subtle forms of resistance to their domineering heteronormativity.
Dynamic, inquisitive, and steeped in neon colors, Don't Call Me Son offers a richly layered examination of family, class, and sexuality in contemporary Brazil. Anna Muylaet's second film premiered at Berlin, where it won the Teddy Award, and is a New York Times Critics' Pick.
