Described by New York Magazine as “Sultry, haunting…gorgeous” and by Variety as a “languorous femme-on-femme opus”, the film follows two girls, Mary (Alana Kearns-Green) and Marie(Alexandra Roxo), who return to their childhood home after their mother’s death to enjoy one last summer together.
The heat and isolation of the countryside blossom and blur the girls’ growingphysical and emotional intimacy. When the local handy man shows up, he threatens to reveal theirsecrets. Mary and Marie’s bond becomes dangerously competitive as the sexual tension builds and the summer soon takes an unexpected turn.
Kelly Burkhardt, VP Operations TLA Releasing, brokered the deal and commented: “There is a new kind of profound queer cinema emerging that grabs hold and doesn’t let you go. Mary Marie is one of these films and we are proud to be distributing it.”
Director, writer and star Roxo added: “We are very happy to be working with TLA on the release of our film Mary Marie and we hope that the release can contribute to the growing amount of queer films that are broadening and expanding the definition of LGBT cinema.”
