The tale of hopeless love between a gay liquor store employee and a Mexican immigrant wowed the festival circuit and introduced the world to Van Sants unabashed, gritty, and sensual story lines. Its very beautiful. The colors are so lush and saturated. Its an art film and an important seminal work, says Kareem Tabsch, festival director for the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (MGLFF). Youre not going to see this anywhere else on the big screen. Catch it at 7:30 tonight at the Byron Carlyle Theater. Tickets cost $12. Buy them online at www.mglff.com or by phone at 305-531-2117.
