After a steamy tour around the festival circuit, Canadian indie film Below Her Mouth opens in the States today and we have an exclusive clip for you to watch while you wait to read Erin’s review on Tuesday. Here’s the setup: Dallas (Erika Linder) is a gay roofing contractor and Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a fashion editor who recently got engaged to her boyfriend. Jasmine sees Dallas hammering up on the roof and it quickly becomes foreshadowing for nailing. Lesbian nailing. Honestly that could be the subtitle of this movie, which features very loving shots of Toronto and a little bit of clothed dialogue and just a whole lot of sex.
I’ve seen a lot of reviewers compare Below Her Mouth to Blue Is the Warmest Color, but April Mullen directed Below Her Mouth with an all-women production crew, which immediately makes it not like Blue Is the Warmest Color, and also there’s no spaghetti. What I haven’t seen a lot of people say is that from the right angle, Erika Linder looks like Kate McKinnon and Kristen Stewart’s adult lesbian baby. I’m excited to hear your thoughts on both issues after you watch the movie for yourself.
