So apparently this year is finally the year of lesbian film. At Cannes Film festival, the lesbian poster child was Cate Blanchett’s Carol – a film based on the book by Patricia Highsmith.
However, there is another gem getting its first outing at the Tribeca New York film festival, and wait for it… its stars Glee’s Dianna Agron (*swoon).
Bare tells the story of a young girl called Sarah Barton (Agron), living in Nevada, who becomes romantically involved with a female drifter played by Paz de La Huerta.
From there, she is introduces to a life of stripping, drugs, and metaphysical experiences that teach her what happens when real life catches up with dark fantasy.
The film, is written, produced and developed by Purple Milk aka Natalia Leite and out producer Alexandra Roxo , two independent filmmaker from Brooklyn. Together they have worked on documentaries, like the upcoming Serrano Shoots Cuba, and the web series Be Here Nowish (which you can watch on KitschMix.tv), which they wrote and also starred in.
It’s kind of an add romance in that they’re like oil and water. They’re such different characters in the story but they fall for each other and sort of change each other’s lives. Alexandra and I pulled together the financing, found another producer to start collaborating with, a local New Mexico producer, Chad Burris, because we knew we wanted to shoot there, in a small desert town.”
Agron, Huerta, Leite, and Roxo appeared on HuffPost Live to talk about how the sexy film isn’t sexy just for sexy’s sake and the relationship between Pepper (Paz) and Sara (Dianna).
