35mm print!

Maria Maggenti’s beloved lesbian love story stars Laurel Holloman (“The L Word”) as a tomboy whose romance with well-off Nicole Ari Parker (Boogie Nights) faces resistance from friends and family. Can their relationship survive? Or are the pressures too great? Acclaimed actress and playwright Donnetta Lavinia Grays fell for the film in college. She writes, “It captured the innocence of young love and self discovery, and the familial dynamics of opposing economic and cultural backgrounds really stood out. Most of my writing deals with this moment of discovery in young queer women and the definition of family, so the film has definitely stuck with me.” You won’t want to miss this rare 35mm screening!
