for her fall 2015
film fall edition
This is an all film edition for the fall. As the days get shorter and a chill sets in the air, there’s truly no better time to watch a movie. Here are four top picks for you to check out this season.
Some you can view from the comfort of your own home, others will require you to head out to the theatre. Make a night of it and enjoy!
Touted as a the Rosemary’s Baby for the 21st Century, Stewart Thorndike’s Lyle stars Gaby Hoffman and Ingrid Jungermann as a lesbian couple who think they’ve found their perfect home. Instead, they soon discover the Brooklyn brownstown they’ve bought is a house of horrors. The film, which premiered at Outfest in L.A. last summer, follows the distraught couple as they grieve the death of their daughter. Lyle will be available on Video On Demand through iTunes, GooglePlay, Xbox and cable VOD on Sept. 29.
The Personal is Political
Fighting for change can have real life consequences for those trying to make a difference. Freeheld, starring Ellen Page and Julianne Moore, follows the story of decorated New Jersey detective Laurel Hester who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and her fight to have her pension benefits left to her domestic partner, Stacie Andree. This is a true story about a couple who didn’t want to become activists, they just wanted what was right for them. Michael Shannon and Steve Carrol also appear in this film that made a big splash at TIFF this September.
Love, Lust and Drama
Fans of the 2007 web series Girl Seeks Girl will be happy to see director Sonia Sebastian’s latest movie, Girl Gets Girl. While there have been some tweaks, many fan favourites return to play familiar roles. While this is a comedy first and foremost, there’s lots of drama and lust to keep the story moving. It starts out with a random hookup in the bathroom of a hotel where a wake is being held, and someone shows up with a gun and settle to score. The story only gets crazier from there. While it’s heading to Spanish theatres in late September, the movie’s Facebook page will have updates on future screening and distribution news.
As a New York teen, played by Elle Fanning, prepares to transition from female to male, Ray counts on support from his mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts) and his grandmother, Dolly (Susan Sarandon) in About Ray. While one might expect Dolly, a lesbian and part of the LGBT community, to be more supportive of Ray’s decision, she is the one who has one of the more visible struggles coming to terms with it. Maggie is forced to face her own past with Ray’s father in order to get him to sign off on Ray’s testosterone treatments. The end result is a complex story about family and love. In theatres soon.
