CHLOTRUDIS CO-PRESENTS at the BOSTON LGBT FILM FESTIVAL IN MAY: AND THEN CAME LOLA and WILD ABOUT HARRY
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to join with the BOSTON LGBT FILM FESTIVAL once again to co-present two films during the festival’s run. Inspired by the German film RUN LOLA RUN, AND THEN CAME LOLA will play on Friday May 7th at 8:30pm at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. WILD ABOUT HARRY, starring Tate Donovan and Adam Pascal, will play at the Brattle Theater in Harvard Square, Cambridge, on Sunday May 9th at 7:30 pm.
Riffing off of Tom Tykwer’s iconic film, AND THEN CAME LOLA tells the story of talented photographer Lola. Bursting with creativity and fresh cinematic style, the film packs in everything we want in a lesbian movie: Beautiful women, a great script, high-quality production values, an exciting soundtrack of hot new music — plus fun animation, hilarious laugh-out-loud reflections on lesbian life (depicted in brilliant direct-to-camera "therapy" sequences) and one of the most charismatic new lesbian actresses we've seen in years: Lola herself, played by the irresistible Ashleigh Sumner.
Shot entirely on Cape Cod, WILD ABOUT HARRY tells the story of a widowed father of two trying to move on with his life and coming to terms with who he is. Set in 1973 and inspired by real events, the film is a true to life drama of coming out in a time and a place that encouraged people to keep personal lives private. Starring Tate Donovan of TV's Damages and Adam Pascal, the original Roger in RENT, WILD ABOUT HARRY is a beautiful, understated film about family and relationships that is perfect for Mother's day.
Celebrating its 26th year, the Boston LGBT Film Festival is one of the longest lived film festivals around town. This year’s festival, showcasing a dynamic, international roster of films exploring gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience, will no doubt be a highlight during the 40th anniversary year of Boston Pride. Check the festival’s website for more information on the rest of the film, panel and party offerings.
