Can your BFF be a man?
The French film Une nouvelle amie was shown in the U.S. with the title The New Girlfriend. It was written and directed by François Ozon.
Claire and Laura were best friends for life. Tragically, Laura dies suddenly, leaving her husband David and their infant daughter bereft of wife and mother. Claire (Anaïs Demoustier) visits David (Romain Duris) unannounced, and she is amazed that he is wearing Laura’s clothes. We learn that David enjoys cross-dressing, and he (as Virginia) and Claire become BFF’s.
That means there’s a triangle, or quadrangle, depending on your point of view. We have Clare and her husband, and David, and/or Virginia. The rest of the movie plays out around these relationships.
As I write this review, the film has an IMDb rating of only 6.6. I think it’s much better than that, and I hope potential viewers won’t be turned away by the underrating of this film.
We saw Une nouvelle amie on the large screen as part of the great ImageOut, the Rochester LGBTQ Film Festival. It will work very well on the small screen. Find it and see it!
