In this vibrant seriocomic re-imagining of Flaubert’s literary classic Madame Bovary, life imitates art in uncanny ways when earthy British beauty Gemma Bovery (Gemma Arterton) and her furniture restorer husband Charles (Jason Flemyng) move to a charming ramshackle old farmhouse in the very same Norman village where the novel was written a century earlier.  Director Anne Fontaine’s (Coco Before Chanel) clever adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel Gemma Bovery is at once a cheeky literary mash-up, a sensuous romance, a witty feminist commentary and a heady celebration of French provincial life.

This is HOT

In Tiger Orange two estranged gay brothers attempt to make amends in Wade Gasque’s WHSF-3023_TIHcharming small-town drama. Set against the sun-kissed fields of Central California, and anchored by strong performances from adult film star-turned-leading man Frankie Valenti (aka Johnny Hazzard) and Mark Strano, Tiger Orange pits two diametric opposites against each other – the closeted introvert versus the out-and-proud hunk. The result is a blunt, playful meditation on queer sibling rivalry and the childhood bonds that force us together.

Chet (Mark Strano) and Todd (Frankie Valenti) are gay brothers who grew up in a small town in Central California to a homophobic, working class single father. Now adults, the two could not have turned out more differently. Chet, the older brother, runs the family hardware store and still lives in their childhood home where he’s cared for their ailing father until his recent death. Todd ran off to LA at eighteen and never looked back. He’s burned the candle at both ends his entire life and now homeless, with no cash, he heads back up the coast to the home and the brother he left behind. The surprise visit shakes up Chet’s safe and guarded life and the two of them living WHSF-3023_TIH2under one roof becomes a recipe for disaster. Soon Todd is stirring up trouble in town with his sexual misadventures and in-your-face bravado and Chet struggles to keep him in check while slowly unraveling himself. But when Todd makes a move on Brandon, a secret high school flame of Chet’s, all of their long-simmering resentments quickly boil to the surface. Chet has all but abandoned his own life to care for their father and keep any semblance of the family together while Todd has lived an open life, bearing the brunt of their father’s rage. Now, without Dad to blame, the brothers are forced to not only hash out their differences but begin to examine the common bond they never truly acknowledged. Tiger Orange has a runtime of 76 minutes and is not rated. Exclusive bonus features will be available on DVD and digitally via WolfeOnDemand.com.
