'Cloudburst' starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker to be screened Wednesday by MGLFF

The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival continues its monthly movie series “GLOW Miami” by presenting “Cloudburst,” directed by Tom Fitzgerald.

Adapted from the award-winning play, Thom Fitzgerald’s “Cloudburst” starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker, tells the tale of a lesbian couple who has been together for 31 years. When Dot is committed to a nursing home by her meddling granddaughter, her partner Stella comes to Dot’s rescue. Together, they escape from a Maine nursing home and head to Canada to obtain a marriage license and have their relationship legally recognized. Along the way, they pick up a sexy, shirtless hitchhiker and the familial plot thickens and evolves.

HBO Latin America is proud to be the sole presenting sponsor of the Glow series. The MGLFF “GLOW Miami” series consists of a monthly program filled with feature films and documentaries produced with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in mind. The films chosen are produced and directed by prominent independent filmmakers from across the globe.
