Two Auroras

The 1948 classic Letter From an Unknown Woman inspired this pitch-black melodrama (2004) by Mexico's Jaime Humberto Hermosillo. Maria Rojo plays the elder Aurora, a successful career woman and unwed mother who comes home to Guadalajara to care for her suicidal son. Besotted since her teen years with the young man's father, a world-renowned tenor, and scarred by his abandonment of her, she spends lavishly on a reunion she hopes will help her son and repair her relationship with him. She's so emotionally stunted that her obsession with her son becomes devouring, yet she has no interest in the illegitimate granddaughter named for her. In Spanish with subtitles. 90 min.
