Margarita Presented by Reel Q Film Festival
February 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
This is a virtual only program streamed via City of Asylum @ home
(Run time: 91 minutes)
This wonderful lesbian drama tells the tale of an undocumented Mexican nanny, Margarita (Nicola Correia Damude) whose girlfriend Jane (Christine Horne) is reluctant to commit and whose yuppie employers — a nice Toronto family, including a bi-curious Mom — are about to let her go.
Margarita is a charming film and is the latest feature from lesbian co-directors Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona who brought us the 2007 drama Finn’s Girl.
