If young Fernando Ramos da Silva (Cassiano Carneiro) had hopes that playing the lead role in Hector Babenco's 1981 film "Pixote: The Law of the Weakest" would catapult him out of poverty, they were soon dashed. Despite the film's renown, his financial status remains grim and his career prospects negligible. This heartbreaking Brazilian drama based on a true story co-stars Luciana Rigueira, Joana Fomm. 116 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Portuguese; Subtitles: English. In Portuguese with English subtitles.
