FILM OF THE WEEK
LESBIAN FILM ALERT!!! I would describe this as Rachel Weiss and Rachel McAdams lezzing off in a new film from Sebastián Lelio the director of A Fanastic Woman but Jamie Starboisky from Queer Media UK summarised this so much better on Facebook the other day thusly...
"A rich, rewarding and exquisitely performed drama about a woman returning home to the Orthodox Jewish community of north London, it’s a timely, distinctive and emotionally powerful story set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of personal desires and the demands of faith."
That should whet your appetite, sounds ace, looks great and it's great to see the filmmaker pushing on and making more queer work after winning the Best Foreign Language Oscar last year.
Disobediance opens today at HOME and all good arthouse cinemas
FILM EVENT OF THE WEEK
You might have last seen Cousin Wonderlette - the innocent yet outrageous alter-ego of indie film producer Brian Benson - at Peaches Christ's parody of Hocus Pocus last Halloween. Here Benson presents his first UK retrospective of his Cousin Wonderlette comedy shorts which are part John Waters, part TROMA B-Movie spatterthons. Not for the squeamish or easily offended!
On Friday 30th November you can join Brian for a Filmmaker with limited places currently available – see here for further information.
The Wonderful World of Cousine Wonderlette + Q&A is at HOME 20.30 Saturday 1st December.
