Trivia

2012 Guide Analysis: "The latest effort from filmmaker Bradley Rust Gray ("In Between Days," "The Exploding Girl") is a lycan lesbian drama. As a concept it sells itself with the teen, gay and dirty old man demographics all likely to line-up to get tickets, or in the latter case sit at home in a raincoat and watch it on Netflix. Yet this indie genre tale was stuck in development for years as a revolving door of cast members came and went until Riley Keough and Juno Temple were ultimately locked into the titular roles.

Studios certainly love to flirt the sexual orientation divide in their monster mashes, but challenge them with the idea of an outright gay genre film and they scurry back to their corners reaching for the nearest kiddie cartoon adaptation. Here is a story in which two New York City teenage girls fall in love as one struggles with her newly awakened sexual desire giving her werewolf-like visions.

The actual amount of lycanthropic action in the film is said to be minimal - more metaphorical than literal aside from at least one nightmare sequence. I'm guessing something more akin to Natalie Portman's delusions in "Black Swan". Aussie singer Kylie Minogue puts in a cameo as the owner of a tattoo parlour and the ex-girlfriend of Jack's character - for those wondering, she does have a kissing scene. Magnolia Pictures are said to be targeting a mid-Summer limited release."
