TIFF 2016: “Below Her Mouth” Red Carpet @Isabel Bader Theatre (Sat.,Sept.10th,2016)
Below Her Mouth is a rarity in more than one wBy A.ay: it’s a
fiction film shot with an entirely female crew, and it’s an
uncommonly frank look at the all-encompassing nature
of attraction — the good, the bad and the ugly.
One of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, April
Mullen’s Below Her Mouth tells the story of an
unexpected romance between two women whose
passionate connection changes their lives forever.
Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor
living with her fiancé, Rile (Sebastian Pigott). On a
night out in the city with her best friend, she meets
Dallas (Erika Linder), a roofer recently out of a
relationship. Jasmine is taken by surprise when Dallas
confidently hits on her; she turns Dallas down, but can’t
get her out of her head.
Dallas continues her cool, self-assured advances. In a
matter of days, Jasmine succumbs and the two women
embark on a steamy affair. It feels like a fantasy world
compared to Jasmine’s life and plans with Rile, but soon
reality rears its head, and she will have to face the
profound changes their sudden romance has wrought in
Stephanie Fabrizi’s screenplay powerfully and honestly
explores what happens when two women fall for
each other, and Mullen brings the story to the screen
with uninhibited flair and assurance, showing us how
love can arise from some of the messiest times in our
We would like to thank Daniela Ponce-Publicist, TIFF+Touchwood P.R. for the invitation to this event.
