Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to the tender, LGBTQ romantic drama HONEYGLUE. Breaking Glass acquired rights to the film in January in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and writer/director James Bird on behalf of Zombot Pictures. The film will arrive on DVD & VOD February 19.
Described as a film that “feels lived-in and genuine” (eFilmCritic.com), HONEYGLUE held its world premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival, and went on to have a healthy festival life, including screenings at the Napa Valley Film Festival, Big Island Film Festival, San Luis Obispo Film Festival, and Orlando Film Fest.
Katie Walsh from The Los Angeles Times noted that “Adriana Mather gives an embodied performance as the dying young woman” and Zach Villa “brings soulful intelligence to the role of Jordan”, while Sherilyn Connelly of SF Weekly wrote, “Jordan and Morgan emerge as fully formed characters who could have just been symbols.”
After learning that she has three months left to live, Morgan turns her protected middle-class life upside down. That is when she meets Jordan, a rebellious, gender-defying artist and together they embark on an adventure of a lifetime. With a hand-held camera, the pair document their time together, creating a lasting record of what and who really matters in life.
“Honest and captivating, the film is a life-affirming testament to the power of love and following your heart, wherever it leads”, said Richard Ross, Co-President of Breaking Glass. “With its themes of empowerment and gender identity, Honeyglue is a most welcome addition to our growing catalog.”
