In a few weeks a new lesbian-themed movie is due to start shooting in Cincinnnati, which has gathered together a great cast including Ellen Page, Kate Mara, Amy Seimetz, Pablo Schreiber and Elias Koteas. Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom Ezer (Princess) will direct.
In the movie, ‘Page is portraying Lucy, the daughter of a man on death row falling in love with Mara’s Mercy character, a woman on the opposing side of her family’s political cause. As a result, Lucy’s value for truth is tested as her world begins to unravel.’ It’s certainly a setup with potential for plenty of drama.
Joe Barton wrote the script for the movie, which has been in the works for a while – indeed it’s believed Page has been attached for over a year. It will begin filming in September for release next year.
