Film Descriptions

 


Hartford Premiere!


Bedrooms and Hallways (Britain, 1999 96 min.) Directed by Rose Troche


The new film by Rose Troche, who put hip young lesbians on the cinematic map
in Go Fish. Bedrooms and Hallways joins a more ambi-sexual group of friends
in bohemian London. Leo and Darren are flatmates, each with a different problem:
Darren's real estate agent boyfriend will only make love in empty houses;
and Leo has the hots for a straight Irishman in his men's consciousness-raising group.
The laughs are infectious - especially when the men's group, led by Shakespeare in Love's
Simon Callow, goes to the wilderness for a night of drumming and foraging for food....
"a giddy comedy of erotic manners" - Stephen Holden, New York Times.


Better Than Chocolate (Canada, 1999 103 min.) Directed by Anna Wheeler

Just when 19 year old Maggie finds her soulmate in Kim, who moves in but her newly
divorced mother and her geeky teenage brother? Coming out to her mother isn't easy,
especially when she insists on believing that the 10 Percent bookstore
where her daughter works is "one of those discount places."
There's also trouble on the job, when a shipment of lesbian erotica is seized
at the Canadian border. Amid all the roadblocks to Maggie's happiness,
Better Than Chocolate
has a delirious sense of romantic possibility,
where even if girl meets girl and then loses girl, it can't be the end of the story.
Music by Sarah MacLachlan, Ani DiFranco, Bif Naked and Ferron.
