Girl Talk, a short film by Erica Rose
Girl Talk is an erotic drama about sensuality and connection, often depicting a gap between emotional and physical intimacy, set apart by its forthright conversations and depictions of sex. The film was directed by Erica Rose. Mia is a “fancy producer lady” who jumps openly between partners. A recent relationship with Elle seems to be offering something new, worth exploring deeper (at least from the perspective of a couple other friends) but on the surface, Mia remains non-committal. One night at a party, she meets Kate, who she’s transfixed by and sparks up a conversation with. Soon we meet Kate’s partner, and though it begins awkwardly between the three, eventually they all leave together and share an evening of testing boundaries. Rose’s film is a provocative and complicated exploration of lesbian relationships, mature, self-assured, and characterized by sharp repartee and beautifully composed scenes of sexuality.
