‘Heartland:’ New lesbian film tackles love, grief


Lauren, a 26-year-old artist in suburban Oklahoma, has moved back in with her mom, Crystal, following the sudden death of her girlfriend. The arrangement leads the relentlessly chipper Crystal to believe her daughter is headed back to the straight and narrow. But, Lauren is only following her mom’s traditional plans for her future in order to stave off the pain of the recent tragedy.

When her brother Justin comes home with his uptight fiancée Carrie to help launch a local winery, Lauren, eager for a distraction, becomes energized to complete the artwork for the wine labels. Carrie reluctantly decides to help Lauren with the marketing concept, but the two have fun searching together for images of authentic Oklahoma. As Lauren starts to regain her sense of adventure, and Carrie starts to question her own predictable future, their excitement for the project develops into a passion for each other. And when the two take cover in a bathtub during a tornado, their closeness sparks a sexual affair that can’t remain secret for long.
