Girl Gets Girl
De Chica en chica

DIRECTOR: Sonia Sebastián

Expected to attend: Director Sonia Sebastián

Sexy, smoky-eyed Inés can’t keep her hands off anyone she meets. But when she’s caught cheating on her girlfriend in the bathroom at a funeral, the aspiring and broke erotica writer escapes back to Spain after ten years away. Enter Inés’s chosen family, a colorful cast of characters who turn Girl Gets Girl into a nonstop romp. They’ve all got a few things to say to Inés when she turns up unexpectedly, including her ex Veronica, whom she left pregnant at the altar. Now their preteen daughter Candela wants to know who her father is, and when the gaggle of lesbians, gays, transpeople, and straight folks raising Candela gathers at her coming-of-age menstruation-themed “Period Party,” it becomes a day of twists, revealed secrets, and self-discoveries no one will forget. Can Inés finally put aside her selfish desires and come through for her community?

Full of campy surprises, stolen kisses, and plenty of lusty backstabbing, Girl Gets Girl has all the dyke drama and passionate hair-pulling of The L Word, paired with the vibrancy of an Almodóvar film. Written and directed by Sonia Sebastián, the film is based on the steamy online Spanish TV series Girl Gets Girl and stars Celia Freijeiro as Inés.
