A new Latina lesbian comedy. Handsome Desi del Valle stars as a twenty-something Latina lesbian looking for love in this charming indie feature from writer-director Mary Guzman.
Desi’s best pal J.T. (Yesenia Aguirre) has three passions: her skateboard, comedienne Marga Gomez, and her friend Desi (not necessarily in that order). When Desi’s girlfriend dumps her for a younger woman, J.T. and Desi’s other pals try to help her get back into the dating scene. This touching, realistic comedy showcases the familiar sights and sounds of San Francisco’s Latino and queer cultures along the way.
This charming first feature from Mary Guzmán is an enjoyable and upbeat look at relationships, from friendly to familial — and everything in between. A fun, intelligent, and sometimes painfully true to life story, we get to tag along the emotional roller coaster of the lesbian dating world.
