#ReelQ30 Preview ‘Margarita With a Straw’

Margarita With a Straw

Saturday October 10, 6:30 PM at the Harris Theater

This lovely movie deftly explores intersectionality. I can’t recall many films that specifically introduce sexual storylines for persons with disabilities. Especially queer people with disabilities. Especially queer people of color with disabilities.

Kalki Koechlin portrays Laila, a talented composer who refuses to let her movement disorder prevent her from living an ambitious and spirited life. After a male student breaks her heart, Laila dides to start fresh by moving to New York City. There she meets a beautiful but visually impaired Bangladeshi-American woman named Khanum and romance blossoms. But difficult hurdles lie ahead: not only is homosexuality still illegal in India, but Khanum is Muslim.

This film is screened in English and Hindi with English subtitles as needed.
