Spanish Lesson Plan
Set in mid-nineteenth century Argentina, Camila is the true story of Camila O'Gorman, an aristocratic young woman who falls in love with Ladislao Gutierrez, a young Jesuit priest. Though tormented by the forbidden nature of their love, Ladislao renounces the priesthood and escapes with Camila to the provinces where they assume new identities and live as husband and wife. Their love affair becomes a pawn in the Church's alliance with the aristocracy and the military dictatorship. When Ladislao is eventually recognized by a fellow priest, he and Camila are arrested and condemned to death without trial for the crime of sacrilege. IMDB
