Actor, screenwriter and comedian Paulo Gustavo’s biggest box office hit comedy Minha May a Uma Peca – who died in May of this year, aged 42 – arrives on Netflix this Monday (7). Initially written for the theatre, the work is inspired by the artist’s own family and addresses, between humorous scenes, family conflicts in the script.
In the first feature in a franchise of three — and so far the only one in the catalog — protagonist Donna Herminia, divorced and mother of two teenagers, goes through a crisis when she learns that her kids consider her a pain in the ass. Then, the housewife decides to spend the day away from her family without informing or guiding about the household activities.
Between memories and moments of self-enlightenment, it soon makes a strong mark in the public, becoming one of the greatest in national cinema. During the performance period, in 2013, Minha Moe Uma Peca sold 26 million tickets in Brazil. The third film released in 2019 is the most watched film in the country.
The debut on Netflix was announced last month on the company’s Twitter. On this occasion, Streaming published a photo of the protagonist with the caption “Dona Herminia and Paulo Gustavo are eternal”.
