The film Cloudburst is set to bring some star power to the Toronto Inside Out LGBT Film Festival, with star Olympia Dukakis scheduled to be in town for the May 25 screening.
The film, about an elderly lesbian couple who drive to Canada to tie the knot, also stars Brenda Fricker and Ryan Doucette.
“I love to watch Cloudburst, actually, with an audience,” says director Thom Fitzgerald. “I probably have watched it more than any other movies, and that’s because it’s funny."
Fitzgerald’s previous films include The Hanging Garden, which won a number of Genie awards, including Best Screenplay.
Cloudburst has been picking up awards on the festival circuit and is set for wide release later in the year.
