As part of the B.Right.On Festival there is a rare screening of the 1996 lesbian film Late Bloomers during LGBT History Month on Sunday, February 10 at 11.30am. Directed by Julia Dyer the film is set deep in the Texas of the 1990s. Carly who is married with two kids, works as the school secretary, and Dinah the maths teacher who coaches the girls’ basketball team, unexpectedly fall for each other. Their late blooming passionate relationship causes a scandal at the Eleanor Roosevelt High School, and an outcry from family and friends. Delicately balanced between comedy and drama, the film takes a look at romance between mid life women with an early glimpse of gay marriage.
