Winner of Audience Awards in the Philadelphia, London and Toronto Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals, this wildly enjoyable and refreshingly sexy tale tells of lesbian love winning against all the odds. When 19-year-old red head Maggie’s nutty mother calls and says she is moving in – Maggie, who quit law school and has been sleeping on the couch of the lesbian bookstore – must find a sublet apartment and make it livable fast. To complicate matters, she has just met the sultry Kim, an artistic road warrior who has rolled in to town quickly moved into her heart and into her new home. But Maggie hasn’t come out to her mother yet so its time to hide the sex toys and “straighten up.” Add to the picture her lovesick best friend Judy, a MTF transsexual estranged from her family; her uptight lesbian boss; and Maggie’s randy teen brother who gets a few lessons on life, and you get this boisterous and entertaining romantic comedy of errors and the frailty of the human heart. Better Than Chocolate is a raucous roller coaster of campy exploits and over-the-top situations with a gorgeous cast and a playful attitude towards sex. Body paint sales will skyrocket across the city because of one particularly sexy scene between the two young and gorgeous leads.  Issues such as coming out, hate crimes and the continuing debate about the acceptance of transgenderism in the community are touched on with intelligence and sensitivity and humor. Adding to this wonderful romance is music by Bif Naked, Ani DiFranco, Ferron and Sara McLachlan. A mad frolic of a movie, great for a first date or a hot and heavy night on the town.
