“Maria Luisa Bemberg’s I, the Worst of All is a chronicle of the love that dare not speak its name, that of the great 17th-century Mexican poet, intellectual, and nun Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, whose writings were condemned to be burned by the Catholic Church, with the Spanish wife of the viceroy” (Edgardo Cozarinsky).
