The 10 Greatest LGBTQ Romances in the Movies

Well, with the release of 20th Century Fox’s Love, Simon (which could be a future contender on this list) it is time to take a deeper look at the most beautiful, heart pounding, and memorable silver screen romantic tales that just happen to be more LOGO TV friendly than your typical offerings.

the shape of water red band trailer

Another Toronto International Film Festival has been resigned to the dust, and it is time for us to look back on it and remember all the great (and not so great) films we witnessed there.

Truth be told, this year’s fest was slightly less exciting than last – the films were good, and some were even fantastic, but overall they did not pack as much of a punch as I’d been hoping. Still, it’s hard to deny the thrill one gets from attending TIFF; day after day, you spend hours upon hours watching films with audiences who are genuinely excited to be there, unlike seeing a film at your local multiplex, where the crowd could care less. If you’re covering TIFF as press, you rise at dawn, make your way down to the Scotiabank Theatre and spend almost the entire day there. It can be exhausting and draining, but it’s also wonderful.

For the sake of completion, I’ve compiled links to all the /Film reviews (written by me and Marshall Shaffer) out of this year’s TIFF, as well as a blurb or two for films that did not receive a full review. Here is every movie we saw at TIFF 2017.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Amber Benson

Tara may have been ripped tragically from the world and from us Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, but Amber Benson is still acting in projects that recall the sweet, vulnerable witch who stole Willow’s, and our, hearts.

The 40-year-old actress’ new horror drama The Nightmare Gallery, feels like a nod to her roots, with a starring role as an gay anthropology professor who investigates the mysterious, supernatural disappearance of one of her students. Maybe if Tara had lived, this would be the kind of adventures she would have.

Call Me By Your Name review

First love has rarely been depicted as beautifully or as movingly as it is in Luca Guadagnino‘s Call Me By Your Name, an adaptation of the André AcimanTimothée Chalamet, probably best known as bratty Finn Walden from season one of Homeland), has a star-making turn as a teenager exploring his sexual identity. Meanwhile, Armie Hammer, a very good actor who’s been stuck in some not-very-successful movies, is downright mesmerizing as the young man who changes his life forever.

First Girl I Loved trailer

Most people got to known Brianna Hildebrand for the very first time through her scene-stealing performance as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool. But if you were at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, you might have seen her a bit earlier. Hildebrand hit the festival with First Girl I Loved, a tender coming-of-age drama directed by Kerem Sanga (The Young Kieslowski). Hildebrand and Dylan Gelula (best known as Xan on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) play two high school classmates who fall in love, but find their relationship threatened by forces internal and external.

While I did catch the film at Sundance, I didn’t have the opportunity to review this one myself, unfortunately. But pretty soon you’ll be able to judge it for yourself as it’s coming to theaters this fall. Check out the First Girl I Loved trailer below.

The Handmaiden trailer

Following a brief foray into English-language filmmaking with Stoker, South Korean director Park Chan-wook returns to his home turf this fall with The Handmaiden. Well, kind of — his new thriller is actually an adaptation of the Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith, with the action moved from Victorian-era Britain to Japanese-occupied Korea. Kim Tae-ri plays a young woman who’s hired by a con man (Ha Jung-woo) to help him defraud a Japanese heiress (Kim Min-hee). But the plan goes sideways when the two women begin to fall in love with one another.

The Handmaiden is just coming off of a warm debut at Cannes, and the first trailer suggests Park hasn’t lost any of his lavish style or pulse-pounding intensity. Watch The Handmaiden trailer after the jump. Read More »
