WATCH: Lesbian Romance “Reaching for the Moon”

Miranda Otto and Gloria Pires co-star in this lush period romance about the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Elizabeth Bishop‘s journey to Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s where she entered into a complicated love affair with Brazil’s famous architect Lota de Macedo Soares. (Bishop’s alcoholism and Macedo Soares’s other girlfriend were two of those complications). Directed by Bruno Barreto (Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands), this English-language drama is currently a nominee for the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Film in Limited Release. The film also co-stars Treat Williams as Bishop’s close friend, poet Robert Lowell.

Freshly out on digital and DVD, Reaching for the Moon is this week’s WolfeOnDemand.com Movie of the Week. Watch the trailer above and then rent or download it directly from WolfeOnDemand.com and other fine digital platforms now.

      @DShucking:

      Now, now, don’t be misogynistic.

      I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Bishop’s, but these stills look pretty cheesy. I hope the film is better than these stills suggest. Robert Lowell infamously had a nervous breakdown after sex with another man. He also attacked Elizabeth during one of his manic modes. He was a piece of work.
