In this riotous riff on Pasolini’s TEOREMA that deserves be a cult classic, the incomparable Sandra Bernhard stars as an American golf pro in Australia seducing her way through a bourgeois family and country-club set on her way to becoming a suburban mayor. “Gives us delightfully incoherent dream sequences, bouts of strip miniature golf, some hilarious lampooning of the new-age mentality, and one of my favorite performances by a dog” per Jonathan Rosenbaum—-not to mention the screen debut of a young Rose Byrne.
Part of the Coming Out Again program–an ongoing series in collaboration with Quad Cinema that surveys lesser-known landmarks of LGBTQ film history.
