    Gavilán’s performance bears out Parra’s advice to “hate mathematics and embrace chaos,” and falls between private and public, assurance and self-doubt.

    Francisca Gavilán's lead performance burns with a dark radiance that's anything but self-congratulatory.

    Mr. Wood has created a poignant portrait of an artist unable to escape the stamp of her class or the burdens of aging.

    The biographical bits soon feel like a distraction from the music, performed by Gavilán. It’s heard often, but not often enough. Judging by the movie, Parra’s songs are fiery and haunting, sometimes sensuous, sometimes bleak. When Parra sings, the movie becomes worthwhile.
