One of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, April Mullen's BELOW HER MOUTH tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever.

Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé, Rile (Sebastian Pigott). On a night out in the city with her best friend, she meets Dallas (Erika Linder), a roofer recently out of a relationship. Jasmine is taken by surprise when Dallas confidently hits on her; she turns Dallas down, but can't get her out of her head.

Dallas continues her cool, self-assured advances. In a matter of days, Jasmine succumbs and the two women embark on a steamy affair. It feels like a fantasy world compared to Jasmine's life and plans with Rile, but soon reality rears its head, and she will have to face the profound changes their sudden romance has wrought in her.

Stephanie Fabrizi's screenplay powerfully and honestly explores what happens when two women fall hard for each other, and Mullen brings the story to the screen with uninhibited flair and assurance, showing us how love can arise from some of the messiest times in our lives.

You may recognize star Erika Linder, the androgynous supermodel famous for starring in Katy Perry's video "Unconditionally" and being famously booked to model for men's campaigns, which made headline news.  At the time, she was one of the first female models in the mainstream eye to be cast as a male model.   BELOW HER MOUTH is her first starring role.

Below Her Mouth is a rarity in more than one way: it's a narrative shot with an entirely female crew, and it's an uncommonly frank look at the all-encompassing nature of attraction — the good, the bad, the ugly, and the transcendent.

BELOW HER MOUTH will be released theatrically in NY and LA on April 28th
VOD release on April 28th as well

The 411:

OK...well let me start with this...this was a sexy movie. At first I thought OK...Dallas is a bad ass lesbian who breaks hearts left and right but has a sensitive soul. We see her breaking up with a lover pretty much from the get go and then she has some one night stands. I wanted to know what her back story was why she is who she is. The movie never really got to that part. There was some discussion once she meets a woman she actually wants to spend some time with but not enough discussion. The woman she meets, Jasmine is engaged to a seemingly wonderful man named Rile who we mostly only get to hear on the other end of a phone.

In A Nutshell:

Dallas wants Jasmine. Jasmine is intrigued.  Jasmine is engaged but dabbled in lesbian love back in the day. Rile loves his woman and trusts her to be a good girl while he is away and obviously never imagined his wife would be interested in love with a strap on.

How I Really Feel:

I DIDN'T hate the movie. I actually liked it but I wonder if I liked it because of the sex scenes which were not only bordering on porn they were porn. There are water induced orgasms, lots of faces in crotches, strap ons and kissing in the rain PLUS the woman are beautiful! The movie won't only appeal to men but to woman as well.

Below Her Mouth oddly made me remember how I felt about Buffy The Vampire Slayer's Willow and Tara. You fall in love with a person NOT a male or a female.
