The Boston Women’s Film Festival is excited to be bringing back Ruth Caudeli’s SECOND STAR ON THE RIGHT after its World Premiere this spring as part of Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival.
Emilia is a 30-something bisexual woman who refuses to grow up, despite the fact that her friends already have. Angélica is getting married; Clara and Renata seem to have their lives figured out—amazing jobs, family, kids—while Emilia is still living with her mother and trying to define her relationship with Mariana. She is also trying to survive as an actress, and teaches acting classes to make ends meet. She feels more comfortable with her students than with people her own age. Emilia's life becomes even messier when she is fired from her job and is forced to carve out a less bohemian life. But Angélica’s bachelorette party reveals that Emilia is not the only one who is struggling to be a grown-up.
Directed by Ruth Caudeli (Colombia, 2019, 83 min.). Digital. Spanish with English subtitles. Narrative feature.
