In her first film since coming out of the closet, the beautiful Patricia Velásquez (The L Word, CSI: Miami) plays Liz, an aloof, soft-butch heartthrob who is used to getting her way with the ladies. Eva (Eloisa Maturen) is a heterosexual mother mourning the loss of her son. When Eva’s car breaks down close to Liz’s home – a coastal sanctuary for lesbians near the Venezuelan Archipelago – Liz’s challenge is set and their fates entwine.

A delightfully rare South American lesbian film by director Fina Torres (Women on Top, Oriana) Liz in September is full of gorgeous scenery and equally gorgeous Latin women. Based on Jane Chamber’s 2014 play Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, the film is both humorous and touchingly real, gently traversing a number of issues faced by women in society through its love story and tangible sub-plots of Liz’s eclectic group of friends.

Winning the Audience Award for Best Film at the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in 2015, Liz in September is definitely worth seeing and is one that will stick with you for a while.
