Storyline

TRU, 37, is a serial bed-hopping lesbian who cannot commit to a relationship or a job for long...that is, until she meets ALICE, 60, a beautiful widow, who has come to town at the last minute to visit her daughter, SUZANNE, 35, a too-busy corporate lawyer and Tru's friend. Alice and Tru begin to forge an unlikely friendship...and more. Suzanne, who has a deeply conflicted relationship with her mother and a complicated past with Tru, becomes increasingly alarmed at the growing bond between Tru and her mother. Tensions escalate after Suzanne witnesses an intimate moment between them. She tries to sabotage the budding romance, but it backfires, as Tru Love is hard to contain. Written by Anonymous

Wonderful film about true love
24 October 2014 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

True Luv (2013) was co-directed by Kate Johnson and Shauna MacDonald. It's an interesting, unusual film about love between two women of different generations. Tru, played by director MacDonald, is a free-spirited lesbian who helps out a friend, Suzanne, played by Christine Home, when Suzanne's mother Alice, played by Kate Trotter, comes to visit. Suzanne makes the word "workaholic" really sound inadequate. She's beyond that.

That leaves Tru, who doesn't appear to have a job, and Kate, who rarely sees Suzanne, with time to be together. Suzanne may be too busy to see her mother, but she's still not happy about Tru seeing her mother. The rest of the movie moves forward from there.

We saw this film at the Little Theatre as part of the outstanding Rochester ImageOut LGBT Film Festival. It will work well on DVD.
