31. Get Your Tickets for LAURENCE ANYWAYS at Portland International Film Festival

LaurenceAThe Portland International Film Festival just announced the schedule for this year, and the big queer highlight is Xavier Dolan‘s LAURENCE ANYWAYS.  Get your tickets now before they sell out!

365PDXq hasn’t seen it yet, of course, so we’ll let PIFF tell you all about it, “Set in 1990s Montreal, LAURENCE ANYWAYS narrates the story of Laurence, a handsome high school teacher and writer who is madly in love with his girlfriend, Fred, a film producer. Their joyful life is turned upside down when Laurence announces his transsexuality and his choice to live as a woman. Fred vows to support Laurence during his transition, but the couple’s new lifestyle clashes with friends, family, and society in general. Told with a visual flair and signature style that bespeaks 23-year-old Dolan’s astonishing talent, Laurence is, above all, an epic, 10-year love story that examines a couple’s inability to exist without each other.”

It screens February 16 and 20, but you bettter hop on getting tickets sooner than later.  The event is sponsored by QDOC, Portland’s queer documentary film festival….which is coming our way in May.  And….here is the trailer:
