Two young actresses fall in love with each other while filming a lesbian love scene, then break up months later, and then are forced to reunite in order to re-shoot the love scene for the movie's distribution.
A fire-footed woman finds love in the most unexpected place.
This is an amazing cinematic accomplishment for first time Director Jeanette L. Buck. Out of Season is both poignant and compelling with an honesty rarely seen in film performances. Especially in the lesbian genre.
Micki is a bit of a wanderer. She never stays in one place too long. Never with a woman much longer. Now family and maybe fate brings her to East Coast Cape May to nurse her ailing Uncle Charlie. She doesn't know if "she's searching for something or running from it."
Quickly this lack of direction is challenged by a local lesbian recluse/short order cook Roberta. As much as you want them together, you can't help but surrender--savor every moment they clash. Sexual tension times a hundred--sweet connection to the moon and back.
What makes this film such a reviving feature is that it exudes the primitive nature of falling in love, being vulnerable, and realizing who you are. No fancy tricks with editing or explosive "Run Lola Run" cinematography. Just a statement from the heart, from the soul.
In the moment.
I've seen Out of Season and put it at the top of my list of nearly any lesbian film prior. Get misplaced!
