Wolfe Releasing, celebrating its 30th anniversary year, has acquired world rights to two coming-of-age films.
Eric Schaeffer’s rom-com Boy Meets Girl will open on VOD on April 7 followed by DVD on April 28 and centres on a young transwoman looking for romance in her small Kentucky hometown.
Newcomer Michelle Hendley stars alongside Alexandra Turshen and Michael Welch star in the film, which won a slew of awards at FilmOut San Diego and was named best feature Award at the Iris Prize Film Festival. Wolfe holds all rights excluding Germany.
Wade Gasque’s Tiger Orange will debut later this year and stars Mark Strano and Frankie Valenti (aka former adult star Johnny Hazzard) as estranged gay brothers who grew up under a homophobic father.
The film premiered at Outfest 2014 in Los Angeles where Mark Strano won the grand jury award for Best Actor.
“We’re confident these will be two of the most popular LGBT films of 2015,” said Wolfe co-president Jim Stephens.
