A lovely gift from Canada
4 March 2014 | by tom-939-411456See all my reviews

It's so nice to come across a movie with gay characters where sexuality is not the central issue. This is a lovely film about the struggles of a real family to stay together and find some authenticity in a world that basically resents authenticity. The fact that the title character is a lesbian is completely ancillary to the plot. We need more films that refuse to qualify love and that deal with homosexuality as fact as opposed to argument. It's 2014, for god's sake. We're past it. Honestly I can't say enough good things about this movie. You could tell that the actors loved what they were doing - the woman who plays the mother is mesmerizing funny. The lead character, "Margarita" is hypnotic, maybe because it's just such a relief to see a character dealing with problems that have nothing to do with who she loves.
