Reaching for the Moon (Portuguese: Flores Raras) is a 2013 Brazilian biographical drama film. The film is based on the book Flores Raras e Banalíssimas (in English, Rare and Commonplace Flowers), by Carmem Lucia de Oliveira.

The film dramatizes the love story of the American poet Elizabeth Bishop and Brazilian architect Lota de Macedo Soares. Set largely in Petrópolis between the years 1951 and 1967, the story coincides with the emergence of Bossa Nova and the development of Brazil’s capital, Brasilia. The film tells the story of Bishop’s passionate and often tumultuous life with Soares in Brazil.
