Elena Undone
USA  2010, 111 min

For the first time in QFest’s 16 year history, we are proud to present a film worthy enough to kick off our electrifying lesbian programming on Opening Night. Destiny brings two women from different walks of life serendipitously together in this enchanting homage to the power of love.

If it's taken veteran filmmaker Nicole Conn (Little Man, Claire of the Moon) a few years between making films, then we are very delighted to have waited. Elena Undone starts off with one simple question: Do you believe in soul mates? Elegant and refined Elena (Necar Zadegan, TV’s 24 ) is a devoted wife to her pastor husband, mother to her teenage son and daughter to her traditional Indian family. For so many years she has been living her life on autopilot even though she truly is not happy. Grief-stricken lesbian writer Peyton (ravishingly beautiful Traci Dinwiddie, TV’s “Supernatural”) is struggling to move on from recent hardship, but she allows her best friend to drag her out of the house. On one such occasion, the two meet and instantly form an immeasurable bond that shakes the foundation of their sheltered worlds. As the newfound friends grow closer, Elena is confronted with intense and unexpected feelings for a woman. Subsequently, Peyton’s strong reservations about getting involved with a married woman keep her at bay until one afternoon when her new friend knocks at the door. What ensues is one of the most passionate and intimate female-on-female scenes every filmed! The sexual tension between the star-crossed lovers is blissfully intoxicating as they discover each other for the first time. But as their arduous fire ignites, there are consequences: contending with her evangelical husband, her suddenly rebellious son, and Peyton’s apprehension to commit. What is incredibly charming about this breathtaking film is that it’s based on Conn’s own life, which just might solidify the dream that we all have a soul mate out there. -- Kelly Burkhardt
