Chlotrudis Co-Presents at the Boston LGBTQ Film Festival in May: GROWN UP MOVIE STAR

Grown Up Movie StarThe Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to join with the BOSTON LGBTQ FILM FESTIVAL once again to co-present  one of the films during the festival’s run. GROWN UP MOVIE STAR, a moving drama out of Newfoundland, Canada, will play at the Brattle Theater in Harvard Square, Cambridge, on Monday May 9th at 8:30 pm.  

Bored with life in her tiny Newfoundland town, 13-year-old Ruby is an unguided missile waiting to explode. There is no one at home to put the brakes on her risky behavior as she finds new ways to get into trouble with boys. Mom’s long gone and her ex-hockey star father Ray is grappling with his own sexuality as the closet he has built around himself begins to splinter under the weight of a new affair.  Writer-director Adriana captures the recklessness and confusion of adolescence, and makes a memorable feature debut with this character-driven melodrama that is funny and touching in its portrayal of a contentious father-daughter relationship. More than that, it also provides a sexy, poignant example of the ecstasy, agony and frustration of sexual awakening — whether it happens at 13 or 40.
