OUT at the Movies Celebrates Norwich Pride

Cinema City celebrates this year's Norwich Pride event with two brilliant new LGBT films.

SHE MONKEYS (12A)

Thursday 26 July, 9.00

Lisa Aschan's SHE MONKEYS is an intense and taboo-challenging drama about teenage sexual awakening with powerful, naturalistic performances from its young actors. When Emma tries out for the local voltige (horseback acrobatics) team she befriends the attractive and confident Cassandra, but feelings of jealousy, competitiveness and sexual attraction have them pushing each other to their limits. Unconstrained by political correctness, the film encourages a perceptive assessment of teenage sexuality, where gender is both a weapon and a toy. Beautifully crafted, SHE MONKEYS found a rhythm as spellbinding as the sound of horses' hooves that punctuates the film. 

"One of the most intense and complex feature debuts to come from Sweden since Lukas Moodyson's Show Me Love" - Variety

NORTH SEA TEXAS (12A)

Sunday 29 July, 5.15

NORTH SEA TEXAS is a poignant coming-of-age drama about the trials of growing up and falling in love. 

In a sleepy Belgian coastal town a lonely young boy, Pim (newcomer Jelle Florizoone), dreams of a better life away from his neglectful dead-beat mother and her spiteful boyfriend. Pim eventually finds companionship in Marcella (Katelijne Damen, ANVERS), his mother's colleague, in the process developing a crush on her motorcycle-cruising son Gino (Mathias Vergels, BO). 

With sexual awakening beckoning, Pim seizes the opportunity to explore his adolescent urges, but will Gino reciprocate his advances? This is a sincere feature debut from Bavo Defurne, who has previously impressed the festival circuit with his short films celebrating gay love.
