With Music From Taylor Swift, USA’s ‘Juma Marruá’ Drama Succeeds On HBO Max



It’s unanimous: the telenovela ‘Pantanal’ has become one of Rede Globo’s biggest hits, even though it was an adaptation of a previous version. Many characters mark people’s minds: the agricultural worker Trindade and his pact with the cramulhão, Maria Bruaca and the female force to end domestic violence and, of course, Juma Marruá, the woman who becomes a jaguar and don’t go home. The truth is that if we leave the urban centers and go into the interior of the countries, we find many scattered Jumas, living and surviving, despite the world. And the story of one of these “Jumas” is the movie “A Place Far Away From Here”, which successfully debuted on HBO Max.

Watch the trailer:

In the 1950s, in peaceful Barkley Cove, surrounded by marshes on all sides, lived the Clark family. They live in an isolated house at the edge of the swamp and far from the city. The father, (Garret Dillahunt) is a violent guy and starts attacking the family. Then the mother (Ahna O’Reilly) decides to leave and, little by little, the other three children leave, with the exception of Kya Clark (Jojo Regina). Over time, the father also left and the little girl found herself completely alone, having to learn to fend for herself. It was at this time that he met little Tate (Luke David Blumm) and the couple Mabel (Michael Hyatt) and Pulinho (Sterling Macer Jr.), owners of the grocery store. Thus, more than ten years pass in the life of Kya (Daisy Edgar-Jones), isolated from social life, becoming a kind of local legend in the city, nicknamed “The girl from the swamp”. Everything was going well in the life of the young woman, until a homicide occurs in the city and the local police blame her for what happened.

‘A Place Far Away From Here’ is one of those delightful films that you don’t even see time pass, such is the ingenuity of Lucy Alibar’s screenplay, constructing engaging scenes that stitch the plot together in such a very competent, developing the characters and the story at the right time. It helps a lot, of course, that the story is based on the book by Delia Owens (released in Brazil by Intrínseca), and that the book participated in the book club of Reese Witherspoon, who is the executive producer of the characteristic . Fortunately, because the actress’ commitment to making this project a reality made all the difference in the story getting the support it needed.

And it really is a very moving story, which deserved to be shown on the big screen. Olivia Newman’s direction uses sentiment in every sequence, taking the best from her cast that imprints the right sentiments so the viewer knows very clearly who they should love. The aerial shots in nature, the exploration of shadows and lights, the movement of animals, all this is transposed into the feature film in an immersive and engaging way, transporting us to this world of Jumas Marruás living alone in the middle of the bush. fighting for the simple right to be left alone by Joves, Leontius and company.
