MIFF FILMS PLAYING IN LOCAL THEATERS!
The Miami International Film Festival is pleased to announce that the following films from the 2005 Festival are currently playing in local theaters:
Perfect Crime (aka "Ferpect" Crime)
(Spain, 105 min)
Director: Alex de la Iglesia
Cast: Guillermo Toledo, Mónica Cervera, Luis Varela, Enrique Villén, Fernando Tejero, Kira Miró
How far would you go to get what you want? For a lothario department store salesman eager for promotion, it means murder-until the homely wallflower he's always ignored catches him in the act and squeezes him for all the affection she can, in this pitch-black comedy sensation from Spain.
Three of Hearts
(USA, 95 min)
Director: Susan Kaplan
What could have been a politically charged statement about a three-way relationship-a setup even more controversial than same-sex marriage-is instead a personal, touching portrait of a love that knows no bounds, making Three of Hearts a powerful statement for altogether different reasons.
(Australia, 106 min)
Director: Cate Shortland
Cast: Abbie Cornish, Sam Worthington
The wintry landscape of Australia's Lake Jindabyne provides the backdrop for a young girl's exploration, and exploitation, of her own sexuality. Sixteen years old and already promiscuous, Heidi runs away from home to a swinging ski resort, where she meets a young man intrigued, and threatened, by her erotic willpower.
MIFF is proud to have screened these films during the 2005 Festival and look forward to the continued success for these filmmakers.
