The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela — A street-smart Filipina transsexual prostitute (the riveting Raquela Rios) tries to adjust to life in Iceland and find her true love in this often-engaging documentary-fiction hybrid from Icelandic filmmaker Olaf de Fleur Johannesson.
And Then Came Lola — In this time-bending lesbian riff on Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run, Lola (Ashleigh Sumner) must dash through the streets of San Francisco to deliver a set of photos to her new girlfriend (Jill Bennett) and she has three chances to make it right
Valentine’s Day — A star-studded cast that includes Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, and Taylor Lautner couldn’t save director Garry Marshall’s latest rom-com about a variety of Los Angeles-based and romantically challenged couples from being labeled the date movie from hell. This pastiche plays like a sappy, watered-down version of the not great but infinitely superior Love Actually and in an effort to reach as broad a demographic as possible tosses a bone to gay audiences with the Bradley Cooper-Eric Dane story line.
