BUMBLEF**K, USA

1 p.m.

Directed by Aaron Douglas Johnston

(USA, 2011, 91 min.)

Starring: Ryan Gourley, Ryan Overton, Heidi M. Sallows

WATCH TRAILER


Alexa travels from Amsterdam to a small American town, hoping to uncover the reasons that led Matt to take his own life. She arrives with a backpack, her video camera, and intentions to make a film about what it's like to be gay in Bumblef**k, USA. While filming her documentary, Alexa meets a self-confident artist Jennifer and has her own drama when she falls in love with her. Alexa has never felt this way about another woman. During her hot summer weeks in Bumblef**k, she's makes a new special friend, clashes with others, and ultimately discovers more about herself than she could ever have imagined.



 

MARGARITA

3 p.m.

Directed by: Laurie Colbert, Dominique Cardona

(Germany, 2012, 91 min)

Starring: Christine Horne, Nicola Correia Damude

WATCH TRAILER

 

Margarita is a wonderful lesbian drama co-starring a gorgeous pair of actresses (with terrific on-screen chemistry). This charming film tells the tale of an undocumented Mexican nanny, Margarita (Nicola Correia Damude, Havanna 57) whose girlfriend Jane (Christine Horne, Tru Love) is reluctant to commit and whose yuppie employers - a nice Toronto family, including a bi-curious Mom - are about to let her go.



CONCUSSION

5 p.m.

Written and directed by Stacie Passon

(Germany, 2013, 93 min.)

Starring: Robin Weigert, Maggie Siff, Johnathan Tchaikovsky

WATCH TRAILER


After a blow to the head, Abby (Robin Weigert) decides she can't do it anymore. She is a beautiful, smart, stay-at-home mom of two, living in the suburbs. She’s the kind of person who never misses a spin class and vacuums in her Lululemon. Her wife, Kate (Julie Fain Lawrence), is a prominent divorce attorney.  After the concussion, the previously affable Abby becomes unsettled and full of nervous energy. Abby is crawling out of her skin with newfound desires, and Kate is content to sleep through it. Her life just can't be only about the house, the kids and the wife.
     Abby, who now finds herself turning her head at every attractive woman she sees, decides to go back to work.  However, it’s not enough to satisfy her unease and certainly not enough to satiate her awakened libido. She needs more: she needs to be Eleanor.
     The storyline may be a familiar one, but the execution of this particular film will keep you guessing. It is also refreshing to see the fact that they are a lesbian married couple as a given and nothing to dwell upon.


CLOUDBURST

8 p.m.

Directed by: Thom Fitzgerald

(Nova Scotia, 2013, 93 min)

Starring: Ryan Doucette, Brenda Fricker, Olympia Dukakis

WATCH TRAILER


This hilarious foul-mouthed, lesbian road movie co-stars Oscar-winning actresses Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis as Dot and Stella, a crackerjack lesbian couple on the run from a nursing home. You'll laugh so hard you'll cry.

     Stella and Dot have been together for 31 years and have faithfully accompanied one another through life's ups and downs. Now in their seventies, Stella is hard of hearing and Dot is legally blind.

Dotty's prudish granddaughter, Molly (played by Genie Award-winner Kristin Booth), decides the best place for Dot is a nursing home that will provide all the necessities. This forces Stella and Dot to make a bold decision: they will leave their hometown and make their way to Canada, where same-sex marriage is legal. It's a last-gap bid to stay together.

     En route to Canada, they pick up a young hitchhiker, Prentice, played by newcomer Ryan Doucette. A small-town boy turned modern dancer, he is returning to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother. Despite his bravado, Prentice is a confused and wounded soul who has much to learn from Stella and Dot as they wage their own unexpected battle - after three decades, can they keep their family together?
