If you’re looking for a rockin’ good time, then run, don’t walk to go see Girltrash: All Night Long at the REDCAT theatre this Saturday.
Girltrash manages to break the mold of lesbian cinema to bring you a romantic, lesbian comedy musical. That’s right, I said musical. Now some of the scenarios in this film are downright unbelievable, over the top and wacky. But that’s okay because we’re not in the real world; we’re in musical world, where anything is possible.
Based on Angela Robinson’s (L Word, D.E.B.S), successful web series, Girltrash: All Night Long follows the misadventures of two sisters at cross purposes. Older sister Daisy (Lisa Rieffel) and her Shanesque band mate Tyler (Michelle Lombardo) have to get to Band Slam by midnight if Daisy is to have any hope of winning back her dignity from ex girlfriend Xan (Clemintine Ford) who has dumped her to sleep with the lead singer of a rival band. Meanwhile, Daisy’s younger sister Colby, the wholesome sorority girl played by Gabrielle Christian (South of Nowhere) has suddenly realized she’s gay and desperately wants to sleep with the unobtainable crush Misty (Mandy Mustgrave) before the night is over.
Just to make things more difficult, throw in Monique (Rose Rollins, L Word); just released from prison, she’ll stop at nothing to get back the money Tyler owes her.
Will Daisy make it to the Band Slam? Will Colby win over Misty? Will Monique clock everyone with a nine iron? You’ll just have to go and see.
Produced by Stacy Codikow (D.E. B.S., Itty Bitty Titty Committee) and made possible through Power Up’s mentoring program; the film is glossy and slick and delivers on its promise of five girls and one epic night.
