Queer films feature in Sydney Film Festival's program preview

LAST UPDATED // Wednesday, 02 April 2014 15:49 Written by // Sabine Brix

Lights, camera... Sydney Film Festival have just released a preview ahead of their program launch on 7 May and there's plenty to get excited about.

Here are some of our picks:

Love is Strange

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina are magnificent in this topical and tender romance. After 39 years together, Ben and George are wed in New York under new marriage laws. Soon after, George is fired from his teaching job at a Catholic school; and the pair are forced to give up their comfortable lives. The great supporting cast includes Marisa Tomei.

Tom at the Farm

Xavier Dolan, the young Canadian who won the 2010 Sydney Film Prize at the age of 21 for Heartbeats, directed and stars in this tense and complex Hitchcockian psychological thriller.

A young man attends the funeral of his gay lover in rural Quebec, only to find himself trapped in a dangerous dance of lust and sadistic impulses with the deceased's brother.

3 Women

Sissy Spacek, Shelley Duvall and Janice Rule star in this surreal, twisted psychological study of the bizarre relationship between three apparently ordinary women in an isolated desert

Sydney Film Festival runs from 4-15 June 2014. Click here for more details.
