The stunning Ruth Vega Fernandez stars as Mia, a thirty-something well-to-do architect who finds her life turned upside down when she unexpectedly falls in love with the free-spirited Frida (lovely Liv Mjones).
The two women meet at an engagement party in the country — Frida’s mother is about to marry Mia’s father — and discover an instant attraction that immediately calls into question Mia’s engagement to her longtime boyfriend Tim. Notable for its sumptuous and sensual love scenes, Kiss Me deftly portrays the ecstasy of true undeniable lesbian love entwined with the angst of coming out.
Beautifully shot, warmly humorous and boasting an excellent Swedish cast Kiss Me tells a terrific, moving story. It also features a fantastic soundtrack that includes singer songwriter Jose Gonzales and superstar pop songstress Robyn (whose irresistible pop hit “With Every Heartbeat” gave the film it’s original US title).
