This film appeals to: Lesbian audiences

“[This] lesbian love story is organic and crackling with on-screen chemistry.” —

Based on the classic lesbian play, Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, the gorgeous drama, Liz in September stars Latina lesbian supermodel Patricia Velasquez and is brought to the screen by esteemed Venezuelan director Fina Torres (Woman on Top).

Every year, Liz (Velasquez), a hardcore party girl and womanizer, celebrates her birthday with her friends at a Caribbean beach retreat. This year is different. She is sick but hates pity, so she hides her terminal illness. When a young woman outsider arrives, Liz’s friends dare her to seduce her. But the ingenue is deeply wounded by the recent death of her young son, and nothing turns out as expected.

“This is a simple but profound film. Watch it for the stunning Patricia Velasquez. Watch it if you love the beach, like women on motorcycles, have a fondness for the badass chick in the buddy group, or you just like a wonderful lesbian film. Then, watch it again for the heart, the magic and the journey that will haunt your soul.” — Jan Miller Corran,
