Film: At First Sight (Coup de Foudre)
Join our friendly group of lesbian & bisexual women for our monthly film and lunch club in various locations across the UK. Every time a lesbian film shows in a cinema and seats remain empty this reinforces the current myth that there is no audience for lesbian films as seat sales get reported back to the distributor. This makes it harder for future films to get distribution. We are working hard to disprove this by promoting lesbian cinema screenings when we find them and also providing hosted socials to break down some of the barriers that are leading to these empty seats. #WeAreAnAudience

In 1942 in occupied France, a Jewish refugee marries a soldier to escape deportation to Germany. Meanwhile a wealthy art student loses her first husband to a stray Resistance bullet; at the Liberation she meets an actor, gets pregnant, and marries him. Lena and Madeleine meet at their children’s school in Lyon in 1952 and the intensity of their relationship strains both their marriages to the breaking point.
