A beautiful sexy DJ is forced to run when she stumbles on a bag of cash. Can she keep the money, conquer her demons, AND get the girl?
Young Arabic Australian Elmira, or E as she insists on being called, seems to have it all. She’s one hot sexy DJ at Sydney’s top gay nightclub and has her pick of the girls. But E doesn’t have a clue. She’s not out to her family, she’s abandoned her beloved music and she’s lost Trish, the one relationship that really matters to her. When she stumbles on a stash of cash, she and her best friend, Matt, are forced to run. But E finds she has nowhere to run but outback Australia and the arms of the ex-girlfriend who broke her heart. Can she keep the money, conquer her demons, AND get the girl?
What’s E not dealing with? The fear of failing herself and her family.
E loves playing the clarinet, but making it is harder than she’d anticipated. But being a DJ, that comes easier to her. And basking in the energy of hundreds of club goers, well, that would go to anyone’s head.
Her ex-girlfriend Trish (Julie Billington), who we first see in several lovely flashbacks, isn’t so keen on her giving up on her dreams. Their relationship has bigger problems though. When it comes to her parents, E has firmly set herself up in the closet.
E carries the burden of trying to be the best for her parents. The pressures of excelling as the daughter of immigrant parents is a reality she constantly struggles with. Coming out just doesn’t seem like an option, as surprising as that might be to some.
‘ll About E may be a story of lesbian treachery and heartbreak, but it is far from depressing. Rather, it is a road movie that incapsulates the intoxicating pleasures of the transgressing tradition, as well as the endless possibilities and ways of realising the authentic self. If you are tempted to search for a deeper meaning or hidden symbolism in All About E, don’t bother. It is what it is – a lesbian love story without being either tragic, smug or sentimental. The surprise is that in 2016, this is more unusual than it ought to be.” – Guardian
