Heterosexual Jill

Posted on September 30, 2014  | Filed Under New DVD Releases | Comments Off


DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: October 28, 2014

Synopsis:

Unable to make progress with her ex-lesbian conversion path, a neurotic “All American” Jill (Jen McPherson) tracks down her ex-girlfriend Jamie (Michelle Ehlen, Butch Jamie) to prove to herself that she is no longer attracted to her. Strung along by guilt and desire, Jamie agrees to the preposterous plan of “dating” Jill so that Jill can close this chapter of her life and move forward with men.
Meanwhile, David and Lola compete for the affections of José, a sexually ambiguous and seductive man from Brazil, and they compare notes on their differing opinions of his sexuality. As complications arise with Jill and Jamie’s relationship, Jill starts to see José as her ticket out. However, when the love triangles shift and realign, Jamie starts having her own identity crisis that she is ill-equipped to handle. A mix of over-the-top comedy, sharp wit, and pathos, Heterosexual Jill rides the edge of laughter and pain, desire and repression, and explores the complicated attachment to one’s sense of self in the face of love.

Synopsis:

Southern Baptist Sissies is a film of the theatrical experience of writer/director Del Shores’ GLAAD Award-winning play about four gay boys growing up in the Southern Baptist church. It explores the conflict between the caustic rhetoric of dogmatic religion and the fragile development of adolescent homosexuality while challenging hypocrisy, exposing damage and offering hope. The intimate experience of theatre on the film screen reveals the complicated emotions from all sides–the confused child, the struggling adolescent and the angry and damaged adult.

Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story

Posted on September 27, 2014  | Filed Under New DVD Releases | Comments Off


DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: November 11, 2014

Synopsis:

In Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story, former U.S. Navy SEAL Christopher Beck embarks on a new mission as Kristin Beck. Kristin’s journey in search of the American ideals that she protected has a whole new meaning as she lives her life truthfully as a transgender woman.

Kristin served for over 20 years as a member of the elite special forces Navy SEALs on SEAL Team 1 as well as the United States Special Warfare Development Group what many in the public refer to as SEAL Team 6. She retired in 2011 with the rank of Senior Chief and continued high-level clearance work for the United States government and the Pentagon.

Beck’s Career included:

  • 13 Deployments, including 7 combat deployments
  • Served on elite special forces Navy SEALs teams Six, Five, and One
  • Awarded the Bronze Star with valor, the Purple Heart and many other honors

But Kristin hid her true identity throughout and after her service knowing she would lose it all if anyone were to know her secret. In 2013, a year and a half after retirement, Kristin came out publicly first on LinkedIn and on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 soon thereafter. Many friends, colleagues and family were taken by surprise.

This film brings exclusive interviews from Kristin’s family and friends about her service, as well as their reactions to her coming out. It also includes exclusive footage of Chris Beck in training and combat. The documentary was filmed only a few months after the AC360 piece had aired, and the truth is still fresh and emotional for those closest to her. While many people have been supportive, some in the public have expressed more bigotry than she ever expected. After a lifetime of service, Kristin has learned that her fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness did not end on the battlefield.


Year Produced: 2014
Directed By: Mark Herzog, Sandrine Orabona
Starring: Kristin Beck (as herself)

BLURAY Wolfe Price: $19.95 Now Shipping!

Synopsis:

Sordid Lives: The movie returns in a combo pack featuring a DVD and for the first time, BLU-RAY version.

In this cult classic comedy from writer-director Del Shores, a gay West Hollywood actor returns home to his small Texas town for his grandmother’s funeral. As we meet the three generations of his dysfunctional family, the hilariously trashy truth of their “sordid lives” is revealed.

Sordid Lives features an all-star ensemble cast, including Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Delta Burke (TV’s “Designing Women”), Bonnie Bedelia (TV’s “Parenthood”), Beau Bridges (TV’s “Masters of Sex”) and Leslie Jordan (The Help) as the Tammy Wynette-obsessed institutionalized gay uncle, Brother Boy. The soundtrack features such country standards as “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “Stand by Your Man,” and “Get off the Cross, We Need the Wood.”

Based on a long-running hit play by Del Shores, Sordid Lives became a hit movie where it had a record-setting 96-week run at the Camelot Theater in Palm Springs. On the festival circuit, it garnered numerous awards, including Best Feature awards at the Austin and Philadelphia GLBT Film Festivals, and Best Feature and Best Actor: Leslie Jordan awards at the New York Independent Film Festival.

The all-new bonus materials (featured on both the dvd and the Blu-ray) include a fresh interview with Director Del Shores (Southern Baptist Sissies) reminiscing about the making of the film, along with cast members Kirk Geiger, Bonnie Bedelia, Leslie Jordan, Sarah Hunley, Ann Walker, Newell Alexander, Rosemary Alexander, Beau Bridges and Beth Grant. The original commentary track is also included.

“My fave LGBT movie? I have numerous. To name just a few — Imagine Me and You, Entre Nous with the delicious French actresses Isabelle Huppert and Mioux Mioux, Desert Hearts (classic, timeless) and If These Walls Could Talk 2, But I’m a Cheerleader and Show Me Love. Concussion. Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf for comedy. It’s endless, really. I could go on…endlessly. Each of these films has resonated with me for different heartfelt reasons. I loved The Hunger with Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. Very sexy, especially with the piano scene. Lakme music. I am clearly attracted to the older woman/younger woman theme here. But In this case, a little extreme, hundreds of years difference. If I had to pick just two it would be Desert Hearts and If These Walls Could Talk 2.”

“I’ve never been a big ‘Hollywood Ending’ fan so my two picks are complicated and tragic tearjerkers. My favorite LGBT movies are – First: Laurence Anyways -from the dynamic Quebec filmmaker, Xavier Dolan. I adored Laurence and Fred – I was fighting for them to make their relationship work, deeply felt their despair and then finally breathed during their rebirth – what a powerful journey Dolan takes us on. I was shaky when I left the theatre. And my runner up is Before Night Falls, with Javier Bardem‘s incredible performance as Cuban poet Reinaldo Arenas – Wow! Both films still linger in my mind today.”
