Bittersweet, honest, and at times darkly funny, the critically acclaimed dramedy feature Language Lessons is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love. Co-written by and starring Mark Duplass (The Morning Show, Bombshell) and Natalie Morales (Dead to Me, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and directed by Morales, the film will be available everywhere on Digital and On Demand October 26, 2021 from Shout! Studios. A poignant and heartwarming story, Language Lessons is the winner of the 2021 SXSW Narrative Spotlight Audience Award and the 2021 Provincetown Best Narrative Film Audience Award. Fans can pre-order their copies now via iTunes.

When Adam’s (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he’s unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his already structured life. But when tragedy strikes, his Spanish teacher, Cariño (Natalie Morales), becomes a lifeline he didn’t know he needed. Adam develops an unexpected and complicated emotional bond with Cariño—but do you really know someone just because you’ve experienced a traumatic moment with them?
