Breaking Glass Pictures and QC Cinema are now partnering with Vimeo On Demand to share their award-winning LGBT titles Laurence Anyways, Out in the Dark, Our Paradise, Edie & Thea, The Falls, and The Skinny starting October 1.
Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways tells the story of an impossible love between Frédérique and her long-term boyfriend, Laurence, a man who reveals his inner desire to become his true self: a woman. Set during the late 1980s and early 1990s, the story spans a decade, chronicling the doomed love of Fred and Laurence, as well as the trials and tribulations that they face. Out in the Dark follows a border-crossing relationship between a Palestinian student and an Israeli lawyer. Nimr, an ambitious Paltestinian student, meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer. As their relationship deepens, they are both confronted with harsh realities of a Palestinian society that refuses to accept Nimr for his sexual identity, and an Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality.
In Gaël Morel’s French-language thriller, Our Paradise, an aging pickpocket and prostitute, finds a young, unconscious man in a notorious Parisian cruising ground and takes him home to nurse his wounds. The two men discover a burning connection and become lovers and accomplices. They work together as prostitutes and take up the habit of fleecing their clients one by one. The story of Edie and Thea is a documentary about two soul mates whose love begins with an instant attraction and lasts 42 years – and counting. Shortly after they met in New York in the early 1960s, they became “engaged”, even though the idea of a civil marriage for gay and lesbian couples would not come to pass for another 4 decades.
The Falls is the story of two young Mormon men beginning to question just what it means to be faithful to God while staying true to themselves. R.J. and Chris were born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now, it’s their turn to serve a mission and experience the Mormon rite of passage. The Skinny is a sharply scripted comedy about a group of four young black gay men and their lesbian best friend. They arrange to meet up in New York City one year after their graduation from Brown University. Their plans for a weekend of fun start off well, but old tensions quickly resurface. Drinking, drugs, hidden desire and the demands of promiscuity put friendship, trust and even lives at risk.
