REACHING FOR THE MOON
REACHING FOR THE MOON is the story of the unlikely and often tumultuous relationship between two extraordinary women: American poet Elizabeth Bishop and Lota de Macedo Soares. Struggling with writer’s block, Bishop opts for a “geographic cure” and travels from New York to Rio de Janeiro to visit her college friend, Mary. There Bishop meets Mary’s partner, Lota, and the two women become embroiled in a tempestuous relationship that will span decades.
"Imagines Elizabeth Bishop’s extraordinary relationship with Brazilian architect Lota de Macedo Soares… a battle of creative and romantic egos." NEW YORK TIMES
