From the writer/director of “The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love. A love triangle of operatic proportion.

Allegra loves Samantha. But she won’t say so. Grace loves Philip but he won’t marry her. Samantha leaves Allegra. Allegra meets Philip. Philip leaves Grace. Allegra falls for Philip. Allegra meets Grace. Grace falls for Allegra. Allegra falls for Grace. Allegra sees Philip and Grace simultaneously and has no idea they’re exes. A story about chance encounters, psychoanalytic excuses and one woman’s struggle to make a commitment, “Puccini for Beginners” is a sophisticated screwball sex comedy.

Nominated, Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival, smash hit opening night at San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and LA Outfest. Film website and trailers:
