Cinema Q: Violet Tendencies
USA, 2010, 99 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Gay/Lesbian, Romantic Comedy
Digital presentation - A complex, subversive woman, Violet (Mindy Cohn, a long way from The Facts of Life) acts as queen mother or "fruit fly" for her gay friends, offering gossip and support, but she wouldn't mind a little romance for herself. By way of comfort, co-worker Riley reminds her that you're surrounded by men who love you, so he and his novelist partner, Markus (director Caspar Andreas), volunteer to find her a fag stag, a heterosexual who prefers the company of homosexuals, though her roommate, Luke (writer Jesse Archer, reprising his role inA Four Letter Word ), suspects that they're an urban legend. While Violet goes on a series of blind dates, Riley struggles with Markus's desire to adopt a child; party planner Luke tries to win back stylist Darian; and HIV positive go-go boy Zeus looks for a love of his own. When her dates don't pan out, Violet turns to house model Salome who offers advice from the perspective of an impossibly gorgeous woman. During the course of this sparkling comedy, Violet may just learn that true love was standing right in front of her all along. Independent gay film favorite Casper Andreas' romantic comedy will tickle your funny bone as the characters weave their own tapestry of love, life, and friendship.
