Eloïse's Lover (2009)

The 24th BFI London L&G Film Festival website states: A sensuous and ethereal story of two young women falling in love for the first time. Young, beautiful Àsia lies in a coma, her mother and boyfriend keeping constant vigil by her side. In flashback we see what led up to her accident, her life studying architecture at university, the somewhat overbearing relationship she has with her mother and her passionless relationship with Nathaniel. Àsia seems unhappy and unsure in the world until she meets the mysterious and exotic Eloïse, an art student who asks Àsia to model for her. Eloïse is openly gay and unapologetically different from anyone else she knows, and despite her anxiety about falling in love with another woman, Àsia can't help but respond to Eloïse. Opening up a new world of feelings and possibilities the two young women fall in love, and Àsia is faced with choosing between her disapproving mother or following her heart. A sensuous and beautifully made film that reminds us love can conquer all.
