CINE EN ESPAÑOL SPOTLIGHT
Love & Revolution is a cheekily combative comedy about a dedicated mother who, after her son’s coming out, decides to fight for LGBT+ rights in the 70s… when homosexuality was still a crime in Spain. Reme, 50 and a widow has a gay son, Miguel, who will become the first in the family to go to university, but confesses that he wants to enter a Eurovision-like contest. At a time when homosexuality is a crime, Reme will end up supporting her son and getting uber involved in the LGTBI movement that in Andalusia, paradoxically, was created within the Church. Love & Revolution is an entertaining, heartfelt comedy that tears traditional taboos asunder and defends the right to love.
