Help new Aussie lesbian flick the Trouble with E reach completion.


Independent lesbian feature, The trouble with e, has burst out of the blocks with their promo on the crowdfunding site Pozible.

Director Louise Wadley says they are nearly up to $28,000 and counting. “This promo gives a taste of what is to come and proves that there is a demand for well told stories with Lesbian heroines”.

Right now an Angel donor is promising to match dollar for dollar every single pledge made before 

The Trouble with e is a road movie, a love story and a thriller. It’s about living between different worlds and finding out who you are. 

Producer Jay Rutovitz says, “We have already raised over $220, 000 in private investment. This last $88,000 will get us over the line to shoot. There are some fantastic rewards for people who pledge. If 60 lesbians gave $100 bucks now we would be there”.

Wadley, whose script had already been a finalist in the great Gay Screenplay competition in Chicago was thrilled to be selected from worldwide entries for LA’s prestigious Outfest ScriptLab in 2011 to work with Hollywood mentors, like lesbian favorite Guinevere Turner and Michele Mulroney.

She said, “Proper script development is vital for making film-reviewss that resonate with audiences and can stand withstand repeated viewings. Too many times the gay community is served up with inferior quality storylines or characters. Outfest put me in touch with fantastic talented writers and directors and pushed me to make my script so much better.”

We know our audience is starved. Ask any lesbian what movies they can think of and the same titles just keep coming up over and over again. I was on the board of Queer Screen for years and we struggled to find quality film-reviewss to screen, especially with lesbian content. We deserve better stories.

The film-reviews stars rising star Zara Michales, (Underbelly, Home and Away) as e, a beautiful, sexy DJ forced to run when she stumbles on a bag of cash. But doors are slammed in her face as she realizes she has burnt too many bridges. Soon she is left with nowhere to go but outback Australia and into the arms of Trish, the one who broke her heart. Can she keep the money, conquer her demons, and get the girl?

Wadley says, “Even for a so called successful and out gay girl like e, as a young Lebanese Australian, the pressure she feels to live in two different worlds and not shame her family, is extreme.  The film-reviews is about secrets and lies, hopes and dreams buried so deep you don’t even know they are there. Sometimes you have to travel a long way to find out who you are.
