Melbourne Queer Film Festival, joins forces with the City of Yarra and Midsumma to present four warm and romantic nights of queer film favourites on the banks of the Yarra. BYO picnic hamper and cushions.
Lesbians looking for an excuse to snuggle up under the stars with their main squeeze will no doubt want to head along to the screening of D.E.B.S, Angela Robinson's 2004 cult classic spy spoof meets teen flick with a distinctly lesbian bent.
According to the plotline, embedded in the Standard Aptitude Test for American high school students is a hidden test which cherry picks pupils who can lie, fight, and steal for an elite secret defense program called the D.E.B.S. Amy is the 'perfect score' and the Academy's great hope for finally defeating gorgeous and sexy arch villain Lucy Diamond ('so evil, no agent has survived a meeting with her' ñ and a dead ringer for Demi Moore!). Right off the bat itís clear that Lucy intrigues Amy more than she cares to admit, and when they finally meet, the chemistry is more than they can handle. Will Amy give up her alpha, beta, gamma existence, and trade it all in for romance with the alluring Diamond? In D.E.B.S., Robinson has created a genuinely funny all-girl-action romp, with an easy-on-the-eye cast and a cracking retro soundtrack. For all the girls who longed for Charlieís Angels with a bit of girl on girl action ñ your dreams have been answered!
