By Gaze International Dublin LGBT Film Festival
Adding to what’s fast becoming a sub-genre of steamy-yet-gorgeous lesbian costume dramas, Sea Purple is set in 19th century Sicily where rebellious young chit, Angela finds herself having the palpitating hots for her best friend, Sara.
As their deep friendship turns to passionate love, Angelas strict father is having none of it and insists that she marry one of his quarry workers. When she refuses, Angela is locked in the cellar until her resourceful mother comes up with a solution. Angela cuts her hair and becomes Angelo, so she can live with and love Sara, and still satisfy traditional conventions.
Based on a true story and starring two of Italy’s best known actors (Valeria Solarino and Isabella Ragonese), this stunningly shot and seductive film turns up the heat on a historical case of gender-bending and a story of great love.
