“Sexy and offbeat… a fantastic little drama.” — AfterEllen.com
In the tradition of LOVING ANNABELLE.
This glossy lesbian coming-of-age drama portrays the provocative relationship between a new college student (fresh young actress Sarah Stouffer) and her beautiful professor (the gorgeous Allison McAtee).
BLOOMINGTON is a coming-of-age drama about Jackie Kirk (Stouffer), the former child star of a sci-fi hit show. Hoping to find independence from her somewhat overbearing mother, Jackie leaves California for the Midwest to attend college. Surprisingly, she doesn’t fit in with her peers, who are constantly aware of her celebrity status. At a department mixer, Jackie is instantly attracted to Catherine (McAtee), a young professor with a reputation. Both being outsiders, they develop an intense bond as they pursue a secret affair.
BLOOMINGTON stars Allison McAtee (IRON MAN, TV’S CSI and UGLY BETTY), Sarah Stouffer (FOX’S SLACKER P.I. and HSN’s FACES OF BEAUTIFUL YOU) and Katherine McGregor (THE WEST WING, BONES).
