Exclusive: Miranda Otto in Poster for Passionate Lesbian Romance 'Reaching for the Moon'

Indiewire is pleased to exclusively premiere the poster for award-winning filmmaker Bruno Barreto's romance "Reaching For The Moon." The film, which screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, has also been awarded the Audience award at both the Outfest Film Festival and the Frameline Film Festival. Wolfe Releasing acquired the film in early July and the film will open in NYC on November 8th and in LA November 29th.

Here's the official synopsis:

Filmmaker Bruno Barreto sophisticated tale of an unlikely romance between two extraordinary artists, set against the backdrop of political upheaval and a clash of cultures. Grappling with writer’s block, legendary American poet Elizabeth Bishop (Miranda Otto) travels from New York City to Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s to visit her college friend, Mary (Tracy Middendorf). Hoping to find inspiration on Mary’s sprawling estate, Elizabeth winds up with much more — a tempestuous relationship with Mary’s bohemian partner, architect Lota de Macedo Soares (Glória Pires), that rocks the staid writer to her foundation. Alcoholism, geographical distance and a military coup come between the lovers, but their intimate connection spans decades and forever impacts the life and work of these two extraordinary artists. The attraction of two polar-opposite women has rarely been so volatile and so erotically charged on the big screen.

Here's the film's poster and embedded below is the film's international trailer.
