Wolfe Acquires Five11 May, 2011 By: Billy Gil
Gay and lesbian film distributor Wolfe Releasing has acquired five titles: Trigger, Mangus, Judas Kiss, Leading Ladies and Suicide Room. The films will release on DVD and VOD this fall.
“These films tell stories that go beyond the coming-out genre,” said president Maria Lynn. “They will touch many audiences.”
Trigger tells of two women who start a successful rock band, only to have it, and their friendship, fall apart, and meet again years later. Dark comedy Mangus tells of a Texas high school senior who hopes to play Jesus in a local play (from Ash Christian of Fat Girls). Judas Kiss is a Sliding Doors-style film about a filmmaker who returns to his college and is allowed to reshape his future, starring Charlie David of Mulligans and “Dante’s Cove.” Leading Ladies is billed as an indie alternative to “Glee.” Suicide Room is a Polish film about a privileged teen realizing he is gay and retreating into the virtual online world.
