“My favorite LGBT film is a bit of a contradiction for me because I am generally not a fan of “Crying and Dying” lesbian genre movies but Lisa Cholodenko’s High Art just blew me away. I remember the first time I saw it I was devastated for days because I thought it was so good. It felt so exciting to be watching a lesbian film that was not a coming out story despite it being about a woman falling in love with a woman for the first time. Lisa Cholodenko’s portrayal of ambition and betrayal in the pretentious Manhattan art scene, her creation of a heroin chic aesthetic with Tami Reiker’s floating camera and nuanced performances by Ally Sheedy, Radha Mitchell, and Patricia Clarkson make this a total classic for me. To sneak in a few more; an oldie but a goodie and for sheer joy you cannot go past Desert Hearts. It changed the paradigm – a Hollywood movie with lesbian characters that did not end in disaster or suicide. WOW! And it took Donna Deitch years to raise the money. Respect. She blazed a trail – crowdfunding before the internet. Ira Sachs’ Keep the Lights On is another film that as filmmaker blew me away. And Andrew Haigh’s beautiful film – Weekend. Oh look at me – I can’t stop.”

“Oh man! That’s a hard one… do I pick one of the first ones I ever saw: Loving Annabelle – which totally fuelled my whole teacher/older woman crush phase? Or do I go with D.E.B.S. because it was hilarious and light hearted and had hot women kicking butt? And then there’s Imagine Me & You with the to-die-for-talented and oh-so-gorgeous Lena Headey in it. I DO imagine me and you, Lena… I DO!”

“My favorite has always been Imagine Me & You. Lena Headey is gorgeous and her and Piper have such beautiful chemistry. Sometimes I find myself yelling out “you’re a wanker number 9” just for fun. I also enjoyed A Room in Rome, I can’t really remember much except that these two women spent an amazing night together just talking and being in each other’s company. But Imagine Me & You. Definitely my favorite.”

“One of my favorite LGBT films is Big Eden. It showed me how filmmakers could create a fictional world that might not exist at the time, but one that could be possible. The films of Thomas Bezucha have been really influential to me as a filmmaker.”

Check out the trailer below and pre-order the film on DVD or VOD now — it’s available February 2nd — from WolfeVideo.com.

WATCH! THE GIRL KING

The Girl King from Wolfe Video on Vimeo.

“A standout performance from Malin Buska, who plays the tomboy Queen with such a high level of intensity that you half expect her to jump through the screen.” — Film Journal International

This lush English-language period drama recounts the life of Sweden’s Queen Kristina, an enigmatic, flamboyant, and unpredictable woman centuries ahead of her time who ascended the throne at age six, was raised as a prince, and strived to bring peace and education to her country—while pursuing an illicit romance with her female royal attendant. Growing up as a tomboy with a strong intellectual appetite, young Kristina (an electric Malin Buska) finds herself thrown into a political frenzy as a teenager. Saddled with the Thirty Years War between Protestants and Catholics, Kristina steers her country away from the conservatives while privately grappling with her own sexual awakening, in the form of Countess Ebba Sparre (the radiant Sarah Gadon), her lovely lady-in-waiting. Her quest to understand love runs parallel with her quest to understand humanity and the violent and restrictive forces conspiring against her. Torn between the conflict of political and personal aspirations, Kristina chooses to make one of the most controversial decisions in history.

The film's epic screenplay by Michel Marc Bouchard (Lilies, Tom at the Farm) is brought to the screen by esteemed director Mika Kaurismäki. The Girl King stars Malin Buska (Easy Money, Happy End) in the title role as well as Sarah Gadon (Belle, Enemy, Cosmopolis, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Dracula Untold), Michael Nyqvist (Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Lucas Bryant (Haven, The Vow), Laura Birn (Purge, Inner Trial), Hippolyte Giradot (Lady Chatterly), Peter Lohmeyer (The Miracle of Bern, Killer Condom), Francois Arnaud (The Borgias), Patrick Bauchau (Boy Culture) and Martina Gedeck (Night Train to Lisbon, The Nun, The Lives of Others).

Winner — Montreal World Film Festival: Best Actress, Malin Buska & Audience Award for Best Film

“There’s more than enough drama, complexity and speculative intrigue in the single decade of Christina’s adult reign to sustain an epic miniseries…The primary focus here is on the monarch’s passionate devotion to lady-in-waiting Countess Ebba Sparre (a wide-eyed Sarah Gadon), whose status becomes a matter of bawdy public rumor even before Christina appoints her official ‘bedfellow.’” — Variety

The New GirlFriend

DVD Wolfe Price: $17.96 Available: January 26, 2016
BLURAY Wolfe Price: $24.95 Available: January 26, 2016

Synopsis:

The New GirlFriend

From the visionary mind of François Ozon (8 WOMEN, SWIMMING POOL) comes this one-of-a-kind gender-bending melodrama, which both shocks and delights in equal measure. Steeped in suspense and indebted to the eye-popping visuals of Pedro Almodóvar, Alfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma, THE NEW GIRLFRIEND blends the macabre with a heartfelt romance in the tale of soft-spoken Claire and her love affair with a mysterious stranger. After mourning the loss of Laura, Claire comes across Laura’s husband David (Romain Duris) dressed head-to-toe in his wife’s clothes. Unsure whether his new guise is the result of foul play, she threatens to reveal David to Laura’s family. But the more time she spends with him, the more Claire becomes seduced by his beautiful new incarnation. As the two become inseparable, Claire wonders whether she is falling for David’s alter ego, or perhaps a part of Laura’s resurrected soul. THE NEW GIRLFRIEND pays homage to classic cinema – from REBECCA to ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER – while injecting its own brand of sensual, sometimes sinister, eroticism.

Breathe

DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: February 02, 2016

Synopsis:

“Breathe is a great film. It’s gorgeously shot and acted, with a very realistic story of a friendship-gone-wrong at its center.” — AfterEllen.com

A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, Breathe, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie (Joséphine Japy) is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay her much attention. School holds no surprises either, and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah (Lou de Laâge), a confident and charismatic new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two form an instant connection, and through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and soon the teens find themselves on a dangerous trajectory toward an inevitable and unforeseen collapse.
