In 1983 Rio de Janeiro, fun-loving Peralta (Paulo Tiefenthaler) endeavors to pay off his gambling debt and pacify Dolores (Afro-Brazilian telenovela star Tais Araujo), his flamboyant, model-gorgeous wife. With happy-go-lucky buddy Borracha (Danilo Grangheia), Peralta decides to steal a golden replica of the FIFA World Cup’s legendary Jules Rimet Trophy. Unfortunately for the inept thieves, they instead manage to heist the original — which Brazil had received in perpetuity after winning its third World Cup — putting the entire soccer-mad country on high alert. Finding a buyer for the purloined goods suddenly becomes a near-impossible task. Loosely based on the real-life story of the trophy’s theft, “Jules & Dolores” won the Audience Award in the Visions section of this year’s SXSW.
