PG-13
Me You Them is a Brazilian film that takes a humorous look at a young woman balancing her life and finding satisfaction in a polygamous arrangement with three men. Based on a real-life character, Darlene (Regina Case) returns home unmarried with a son and finds her mother has died. Luckily a neighbor, Osias (Lima Duarte), agrees to marry her and take her in. This is an amiable, although not fulfilling, life for Darlene who soon has another child. The baby clearly does not belong to Osias, but still is readily accepted into the family. A cousin appears and they let him stay as he fulfills a need to cook and help at home. Darlene is quickly pregnant again with the helpful cousin as father. While life is improving, Darlene still feels a need for more passionate romance and finds Ciro, a virile young field hand, who also happily joins the clan.
