DIRECTOR: Alexandra-Therese Keining - SWEDEN

“Love can blossom at the most inopportune moments—and that’s what happens to Mia and Frida, two thirty-something professionals who meet at a party celebrating the engagement of Frida’s mother and Mia’s father. As future stepsisters—not to mention the fact that Mia is herself engaged—theirs will not be an easy path. From this beginning, Keining fashions a nuanced and deeply felt drama that does not avoid confronting the barriers—both personal and social—faced by her same-sex couple. For the heretofore-hetero Mia, her attraction to Frida—a lesbian very comfortable in her own skin—is a shock. But as their relationship develops emotionally and sexually, the film’s most impressive feat comes through showing just how organic their growing love for each other is. That love knows no boundaries is confirmed in a fresh and thoroughly involving way.”—Palm Springs Film Festival (107 mins.)
