Guadalupe is living in her son-in-law Steve’s guest room while she works to translate the children’s books her deceased daughter has written. Overcome with grief and separated by a language barrier, the unlikely housemates struggle to communicate until brought together by the power of telenovelas. Guadalupe in the Guest Room is a funny and heartfelt celebration of new beginnings, breaking barriers, and a realization that understanding doesn’t always require speaking the same language
“In Guadalupe in the Guest Room, communication about loss and renewal goes beyond mere words … Meneses conveys emotional truths that are difficult to articulate, whether through Claudia’s quirky, fantastical stories or through wordless exchanges that range from violent to compassionate … Guadalupe makes it clear that his is a distinctive voice worthy of attention.” —NJ Star-Ledger
