A star-studded live Q&A and exclusive global premiere of feature Rain Beau’s End.
This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE and Lesflicks chose to release a title which does just that. Rain Beau’s End is the story of a lesbian couple pursuing adoptive parenting. Throughout the film they choose to challenge the labels, the misconceptions and the barriers that they experience on a daily basis as a prominent lesbian couple with an adopted child. It shows the challenges that lesbian parents go through, that LGBT people go through; it challenges us to look at the labels we apply to be, and to think about the impact and potential damage those labels can cause.
Rain Beau’s End will have its global premiere online on Lesflicks Video on Demand platform and will be followed by a live Q&A Session featuring the cast: Janelle Snow, Amanda Powell, Ed Asner, Sean Young, Christian Stolte, Melanie Chandra and Kirk Kelleykahn; the writer, Jennifer Cooney; the director, Joe Orlandino; the producer, Tracy Wren; and the founder of Lesflicks, Naomi Bennett. This live Q&A will be hosted by Sarah O’Connell on Monday 8th March 2021 at 8pm GMT/12pm PST to celebrate International Women’s Day.
This intimate lesbian family-drama set in the late 1990s depicts the struggles of a progressive lesbian couple’s relationship raising their son in the spotlight. Prominent, progressive lesbian couple Hannah Driver and Jules Paradise, adopts a child named Beau who is subsequently diagnosed with 47, XYY, believed at that time to make boys more prone to aggressive behavior (since been disproved).
Hannah and Jules ride the rough journey of Beau’s apparent behavioral issues, and how it not only affects his life and the small community they inhabit but most especially their relationship and their lives. As Beau gets older, and research of his condition grows, Hannah and Jules must face the reality of a self-fulfilling prophecy and the ghosts of their past.
Jennifer Cooney, Writer & Producer of Rain Beau’s End said: “The release of Rain Beau’s End exclusively on Lesflicks could not be a prouder moment for me, as both a filmmaker and a lesbian. I remember a time in my life when I owned every lesbian film ever made on DVD—and the collection barely took up any space on my shelf. So, to have a film that I wrote and produced be distributed to the world via a platform dedicated to the sharing of lesbian films is a mind-blowing honor, not to mention a monumental leap towards a greater understanding of the LGBTQ+ community. Every cast and crew member of this film led with their heart, all in service of this very important story about acceptance and the effects of labeling.”
