Dora (Montenegro) is a lonely and cynical older woman who spends her days unhappily writing letters for illiterate customers at Rio de Janeiro's Central Station. But things begin to change when she reluctantly befriends a homeless orphan, Josue. When she agrees to help Josue search for the father he's never known, Dora also rediscovers something she'd thought was lost forever: her heart.
A touching and welcome respite from City-of-God style portrayals in Brazilian film
- Central Station review by CP Customer
Another great film from Walter Salles, Central Station is extrememly watchable with great chemistry between it's main characters. It follows the search for young Josue's father after the untimely death of his mother, but really works beautifully upon such a simple plot. Recommended.

Road Movie with a Difference

This is a film I can return to at various times. A very real "feel good" film fully grounded in reality.
