The lesbian "Thelma and Louise"
Joe + Belle was nominated for “Best Film” in the Israeli Oscars!
Joe + Belle is an incredibly funny and romantic new lesbian feature boasting a great story, a whimsically dark comic sensibility and stellar performances. Writer-director-star Veronica Kedar shines as Joe — a laid-back dope dealer full of magnetic charisma. Sivan Levy is Belle — a forlorn yet irresistibly sensual crazy girl who attaches herself to Joe and refuses to let go.
The chemistry here is spot-on perfect as the two girls fall madly in love against the backdrop of a wild cross-country getaway — after they accidentally kill a guy! Full of whimsical sensibility and black humor, Joe + Belle is destined to restore your faith in young love.
“A creative tour-de-force… Joe + Belle manages to say something deep about love and violence while still offering all the gallows humor you could hope for.” —AfterEllen.com
“Kedar and Levy (she reminds me of Marion Cotillard) are excellent in the lead roles and their bitter-sweet chemistry is just heart-breaking.” —Twitchfilm
