Writer-director Madeleine Olnek (CODEPENDENT LESBIAN SPACE ALIEN SEEKS SAME) and co-writers/co-stars Jackie Monahan and Lisa Haas, turn the male hustler movie genre on its ear with this irreverent, deadpan, lesbian sex worker buddy film.

Black, white, straight, gay and all things in between, these friends discover firsthand both the rewards and consequences of growing up as outsiders. The film reminds us that being a teenager is always hard, even when life tells you being young should be carefree and easy. Its ensemble of young actors make an impact, as do Mo’nique and Washington as Randy’s conflicted parents.

LILTINGThe sudden death of Kai, a young London man, leaves his Chinese Cambodian mother Junn (Pei-pei Cheng, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON) and his boyfriend Richard (Ben Whishaw, SKYFALL) profoundly grieving. Feeling a strong sense of responsibility for Kai’s only family member, Richard reaches out to her. Though Junn speaks little English, her dislike of Richard is plain, and she responds with stony resistance. Since they share no common language, Richard hires a translator to facilitate communication, and the two improbable relatives attempt to reach across a chasm of misunderstanding through their memories of Kai. Writer-director Hong Khaou’s moving and intimate debut dances between the real and imaginary to express the unspeakable loss that both characters experience. Boasting delicate performances by both Whishaw and Cheng, this Sundance award-winner is a perceptive meditation on the connection between two human souls, revealing that what separates us can also bind us together.
