OPENING FILM



Four More Years [(Fyra år till]


Tova Magnusson-Nörling | Sweden | 2010 | 90 min | Swedish | s.-t.a.

image+nation 24 opens with Four More Years, a snappy Swedish comedy that proves love can be so political - especially when you're a politician! When conservative party leader David unexpectedly falls for a man that plays for the other team (the Socialist Party), he is driven down a rocky path of self-discovery. A mature romcom, laced with sparkling political satire, Four More Years sweetly redefines what it means to be bipartisan.


CLOSING FILM

Leave it on the Floor

Sheldon Larry | U.S.A. | 2011 | 101 min | English

Bidding adieu to another edition of the Festival, Leave it on the Floor is an urban musical, its score weighted with the emotional honesty of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and the break-out-singing bravado of Glee. Throw in some romance, a dramatic love triangle, and a nod to Justin Timberlake and hearts and feet are bound to be thumping.

Kicked out on the street by his homophobic mother, remarkably handsome Brad (Ephraim Sykes) finds himself homeless and living out of his car. While cruising and/or pickpocketing, Brad meets Carter (Andre Myers), who is also adept at petty theft. A chase ensues, with Brad attempting to retrieve his stolen wallet from Carter. This is where Brad stumbles into a raucous vogue ball, and becomes immersed in the L.A. ball scene. After much reluctance, house mother Queef Latina (Miss Barbie-Q) takes Brad under her wing and welcomes him into the House of Eminence. With ball categories like Schoolboy Realness and Club Kid Fancy, it’s clear that Brad is destined to compete in the Sex Iron performance. Leave it on the Floor is an urban musical, its score weighted with the emotional honesty of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and the break-out-singing bravado of Glee. Throw in some romance, a dramatic love triangle, and a nod to Justin Timberlake, hearts and feet are bound to be thumping. Director Sheldon Larry and writer Glenn Gaylord (Eating Out 3: All You Can Eat) mix the musical genre with vogue culture to create a fabulous tale of empowerment. [-]

Political heir presumptive, the aristocratic, humorous and smug David Holst (Björn Kjellman) is devastated by his electoral loss. His downward spiral into apathetic self-pity and The World of Warcraft is arrested by his cynical and savvy wife Fia (the statuesque Tova Magnusson-Nörling) – who immediately starts plotting vengeance. As David returns to dreary parliamentary routine, he finds himself unaccountably tripping over the freshly minted Minister of State for the opposition Socialist Party, the boyishly charming rogue Martin (Eric Ericsson). A friendly debate erupts into a frisky first kiss – and David must confront his dormant longings, and the implications for colleagues and loved ones. Caught in the crosshairs of political rivalries, David finds himself compelled to make a life-changing decision... Prolific actress/director Magnusson-Nörling’s assured hand serves up a delicious, mature romcom laced with sparkling political satire. William Berhman’s crisply baked banter is supported by Ericsson’s and Kjellman’s easy on-screen chemistry, while Mauro Scocco’s bubbly score keeps pace with the action. As with Patrick 1.5, female directors are helming intelligent and sophisticated reflections on queer issues while examining Sweden’s increasingly rightward shift. [-]
