CGiii Comment

Things are not quite what they seem in Octavio Is Dead!, a moody and sexually charged supernatural tale from multitalented director Sook-Yin Lee.

Tyler (Alias Grace’s mesmerizing Sarah Gadon) is unemployed and unsettled after learning that her father, a man she’s never met, has died and left her everything, including an apartment cluttered with the detritus of a complicated life. Her mother Joan, played by the legendary Rosanna Arquette, doesn’t even want to talk about it. Impulsively deciding to explore her father’s stomping grounds before the apartment is sold, Tyler’s curiosity about her fathers lowly evolves into a sensual exploration of her own identity and desires.

With incredible performances from an excellent cast that includes hunky newcomer Dimitris Kitsos, Lee has produced the seemingly impossible: a sexy and thoughtful queer film that appeals to women and men and to those who like their gender bent.
