Rarely seen in the USA, this film was inspired by the real-life case of a Chilean judge who was stripped of custody of her daughters for being a lesbian. Told from the point of view of thirteen-year-old Sarah, we see the tension of adult drama through the confused and disillusioned eyes of a young girl coming of age.
Post-show: Laurel Redington Whitaker leads a conversation/Q&A with local youth who have same-sex parents to discuss growing up in families unlike those of other kids.
"A film that doesn't hide its militancy, but that prefers to convince to the viewer with common sense and the sensitivity." - Cinemania (Spain)
"Wonderfully light of touch, full of well-observed human detail and even-handedly compassionate, this richly human film is full of the quieter values and is topped off by an assured performance of great maturity by the young Julia Lubbert as the teen, Sara, whose moving tale this really is." - Hollywood Reporter.
