Tru Love CDN Trailer from Tru Love The Film on Vimeo.

It's time for the 22nd annual Lesbian Looks Film Series kicks off tomorrow night at the Loft! The first film in the series  this year is "Tru Love," which has won a ton of awards and looks pretty good to me.

From the Loft:
Tru Love (Kate Johnston and Shauna MacDonald, 2013, Canada)
Loft Cinema
Thursday Feb 19, 7 p.m. 

A touching story of mourning and cross-generational desire set in Canada’s frigid winter. Toronto’s gray, snow-capped skyscrapers form a fitting backdrop for Tru and Alice, who kindle a close connection in their search for relief from desolate periods they have each been weathering in solitude. Alice’s mature elegance shines through to Tru, a 30-something commitment-phobe who has fled from romantic entanglements ever since running away from homophobic parents as a teenager. Alice has accumulated her own share of burdens over the course of her life; she became a widow just months earlier, and finds in Tru—played by co-director and co-writer Shauna McDonald—a partner for exploring romantic desires she repressed throughout her long marriage.

Winner of 14 International Film Festival Awards, and named one of 2013’s Top Ten Films by Huffington Post, UK.

“Delightful. A sparkling gem of a film.” Curve Magazine
The series will continue March 24 with "Out in the Night," April 2 with "The Home Stretch" and April 9 with "Of Girls and Horses."
