A Kiss Mid-air

Posted by Censor Librorum on Sep 9, 2007 | Categories: Lesbian in a Catholic Sort of Way

The talented Jane Hawkins (Dreya Weber) was an impressive gymnast at the top of her game until a devastating injury ended her career. Now she pours the passion, strength and discipline that once fueled her sport into maintaining both a tedious job as a massage therapist and a loveless marriage. A chance meeting leads sets Jane on a new path: performing a Cirque Du Soleil style aerial act with a mysterious and beautiful dancer named Serena (Addie Yungmee). Each of them is illuminated by the presence of the other, but there are distractions. Jane is distressed by her lack of children while Serena is a closeted lesbian who tackles stereotypes with being an adopted Korean daughter of Jewish parents. As the stunning pair prepares to audition their act for a Las Vegas show, the gravitational pull between the two women becomes increasingly unavoidable…

Sounds like a lesbian movie with a number of sub-themes:

-married to a man/attracted to a woman

-coming out in midlife (42)

-older/younger woman romance

-interracial romance

This movie won a number of awards at gay/lesbian film festivals in 2006. Now out on DVD.
